Let's get back to humorous verse. I could do with a good laugh. Perhaps my readers in USA could do with one too. Where have you all disappeared to, guys?
The Magnificent Attenboroughs
That chap David Attenborough
Is inordinately thorough
When searching out new species.
He studies everything
From the colour of their skin
To the individual texture of their faeces.
Now Dickie, on the other hand, he
Made the film entitled “Gandhi”,
That architect of India’s freedom.
Although a man of fame and note, he’s
Remembered most for skinny legs
And freshly-laundered dhotis.
That’s Gandhi, by the way, not Dickie;
Wearing loincloths would be tricky
In “Rillington” or Kringle’s fable,
Okay in “Great Escape”, perhaps,
But not for pukka English chaps
Who’d find it most un-pal-a-table.
In science fact and filmic fiction,
These brothers shone with rare conviction.
On movies and on TV screen,
So hard, you say, to choose between.
You’d vote for Dick or Dave, alright.
But which one is your favou-rite?
