I’ve gone off reading all that stuff
about the Nag Hammadi scrolls –
you know the ones found by those
shepherds in an ancient cave when
they’d gone in there for a squat –
I mean all very interesting yes, but
half of them landed on a cooking
stove when other fuel ran out – so
what are we supposed to learn from
all of that papyrus - if anything at all
No what does interest me though is
the three lost tape recordings of the
Home Guard and good old Dad’s Army
balmy days when Britain was at war.
Fortunately the cavalry is about to
arrive – or do I mean reinforcements
are on way – or at least re enactments
may perhaps re occur to save the day.
Who could replace John Le Mesurier
or Dunne or Mannering (Mainwaring)
or even Private Pike – whose name was
almost leaked to Gerries by faux pas.
Just who was it they were trying to kid?
Was it that geezer they called Mr Hitler?
Come on Sergeant Wilson get those men
back on the road marching again and
stop that Spiv from passing around those
smuggled fags. Don’t you know it’s highly
irregular and against the war effort?
‘Only slightly Sir’. Be quiet Sgt Wilson
and try to keep in step. ‘Awfully good of
you to say so Sir. I think Godfrey needs
to stop again for another wee poor chap.
