334. Big Bother.

like drawing a moustache on the Mona Lisa

it’s one of those things that’s just not done


– wiping one’s arse

on the leaves

of a book

and in this case

the Gideon Bible

but, when needs must,

and you’re all out of loo roll,

caught out

in flagrante delicto,

keks around feet

shuffling across the room…


still, not as bad as the time in Abu Dhabi

run out of town

for the same kinda thing,

only out there, they don’t have bibles

in their bedside cabinets

no siree

and d’you know ?

they didn’t seem to see the funny side –

not at all.
