"On Saturday morning a boy for Kelly
In the sitting room right in front of the telly
In their home with his family around
Cor, he don't half make a sound!

Ben rang to tell me, early next day
The wonderful news he was bursting to say
They're in good heal..." Read more of this chapter »
"Poor Nick Clegg, gone the dream
No longer the cat that got the cream,
On media shows he squeaks and squirms
Caught in the middle of coalition terms.

You can see that he's not up to the job
As soon as he opens his uncertain gob,
Catch 22, a rock and hard..." Read more of this chapter »
"A little baby boy slipped into the world last night,
To our family a wonderful sight;
Noah is his name - well, so what?
He could have been Shem, Isaac or Lot!
Seven pounds ten, a good healthy weight
Just a few ounces short of eight;

"Doreen dear, I wish to say

Not to leave it in Dordogne

Enveloping the whole of you
Remember all the happy times
All that good feeling too.

For no one has a soul-mate
Who matches up to m..." Read more of this chapter »
"There are terrible times ahead
At least that's what's been said
Labour’s bankrupt us all
Is the Tories clarion call
It’s time we were properly led

There are terrible times ahead
At least that's what's been said
Then came the fatal hour
When Dave and Nick..." Read more of this chapter »
"Think of poor Ross
And his tragic loss
Of a treasured fingernail
He was certainly doomed
And in the doc's he swooned
But lived to tell the tale.

He was a tragic sight
That foreboding night
As he perused his damaged digit
Lizi did what she could
