I’m all locked down, feeling a little let down by home life, moaning about all these claustrophobic walls closing in. Perhaps a harsh reset about what really matters is in order? R.I.P. TBT, one of the good ones.

Grim Grin.

This stick at home virus is making my life a bane,
My wife is sick of hearing me grimblingly complain,
But today a story in the Star shut down my tired refrain
And I shut up, quietly sat down and read that sorry story again.

A man would be a fool not to have as happy a life as it could be
And Tim Brooke-Taylor’s take on this comedic life was a goodie,
A man is expected to grieve in po-faced silence- but should he?
Timbo wouldn’t begrudge me giggling in his memory would he?

    1. One of my favorite bits of wordplay was on the radio show ‘I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again’ in a Robin Hood spoof where Tim/Sheriff of Rot says ‘Oh Robin, next time you shall not so easily grasp through my slip.’ How could any impressionable schoolboy not learn to appreciate the twists of the English language from that rather than ploughing through ‘Daffodils’ or Joyce Kilmer or some other similar dead wood?
