Poem: ‘An Avuncular Request’
Vol. 15 No. 14 · 22 July 1993
Re E. Winter’s nunclish poem and your letters column passim:
Rhyme’s dry couplings find G. Ewart even hard put to surpass him,
The solitary substitute for the copulative ‘deathly’
Being nothing but a wet weekend (and dirty) in Llanelli.
But surely it is time to cap, put an end to, this lubricity
And starve Ms F. Pitt-Kethley of the oxygen of pubicity?
This short epistle puzzled but ejaculated pithily
I sign paronomastically, sincerely, and Stan-Smithily.
