RIP Michael Foot

It's a sad day for those of us on the Old Labour, socialist spectrum. Michael Foot was the very best kind of politician, one who was genuine in his concerns and his actions.

Poetry meme

Most of my favourite poetry is either still in copyright or very long, but here's a short poem that I am fond of quoting:

Jenny kissed me when we met,
Jumping from the chair she sat in.
Time, you thief! who love to get
Sweets into your list, put that in.
Say I'm weary, say I'm sad;
Say that health and wealth have missed me;
Say I'm growing old, but add-
Jenny kissed me!

Leigh Hunt

You know the drill: now you post a poem.
