entry picture

(It's all kicking off tonight. Can't wait)

St Sampson’s Over 60’s Club

A place I like to be

It’s there I practise amateur

Gynaecology.

 

I tell them I’m a doctor

“Retired now” I’d say

And book them in appointments

At a rate of 3 a day.

 

The most of them see through my ruse

But let deception pass

They know this chance to open up

May likely be their last.

(A belated Christmas carol)

Silent Man

Invisible Man

Keeping mum

Keeping schtum

Labour Movement for Second Vote

Corbyn defined by this

Corbyn – weak as piss.
