Hello, is that 41679?
Is Simon there? This is Jim Devine.
Look, I've just heard the wife in number 23
has won the pools; well, she's loaded utterly
and the clubhouse needs at least another grand
to be built. Should I go with begging hand
and ask her, please, to donate five hundred
in silent memory of her father Fred
so then I won't feel, in a week or two
I have to tell her husband of her games with you.
Oh, come on Simon, you're no longer 21,
give her the word, she's begging to be done.
