Commercial Blake

And did those feet in extra time
Race across England's TV screens?
And was the Sunday joint of Beef
Served up with pale and tasteless Greens?

And did Accountants scoff their Wine,
Dine out upon their adman's skill?
And did Pig Ignorance provide the tune
Where English swine ate English swill?

Bring me my balls, red, white and blue!
Bring me my Videos on hire!
Bring me my Cans! My popcorn, too!
Bring me John Major, my Messiah!

I will not cease from Euro Fight,
Nor let the Sun fall from my hands,
Till I have bawled some raw abuse
From England's stinking armchair stands.


From Tony Blair reminds me of a budgie

After the fuss about the BBC's choice of Beethoven's 'Ode To Joy' as its Euro '96 theme tune, ITV settled on the Parry version of William Blake's 'Jerusalem'.
