THE FAME GAME

A few lunatics who adopt dolphins
may imagine how many lapdancers
go on television just like you.
Once a year big-name stars rock up
in a warm, pink bubble bath.
Who is normal? Who’s doing the rounds?
The Man explains he hasn’t got a mobile
in the car and Edith and Danny live
in a big house. This involved questions
about my sex life and wearing shoes.
I calmly explained I wouldn’t buy my own milk
but it was no good. The radio station
flogged my castle full of stuffed Germans.
