Brings back the old ploy I knew in pubs of the past that had free salted peanuts in dishes on the bar - slyly intended to increase
the sale of beer to assuage the thirst. πŸ˜‹

I personally think Larkin is a great introduction to English culture as it truly is - sexually repressed, hypocritical, agnostic/atheist, classist, sceptical and gloomy - for children from other cultures. That lesson cannot come some enough, IMHO.

Thank you Rose. Stephen & Holden for your generous words.

I have let things slip, a thirty-year-old cargo boat
stubbornly hanging on to my name and address.
They have swabbed me clear of my loving associations.
Scared and bare on the green plastic-pillowed trolley
I watched my teaset, my bureaus of linen, my books
Sink out of sight, and the water went over my head.

Sylvia Plath, Tulips
