Advice for Mark Austin

Oh Mark, oh Mark,
It isn’t right
That you present the news each night.
You really should be
Hanging out
In places smote with war and drought.

You look far better
With a tan
Squatting on the back of a van,
Ducking to dodge
The mortar fire,
Wearing your camouflaged attire.

But stuck inside,
Wearing a suit?
It really just does not compute.
Hang up your tie!
Forget this racket!
And put back on your green flak jacket!

Comment by Urban Chick

maybe he’ll do the news in his open necked slightly rumpled white shirt – might not be so effective without sunset-over-thai-beach backdop of course. top poem – it might just persuade him..

I think his bionic eye will be able to see through twaddle, and the bionic hearing will help pick up all sorts of extra news snippets, and…

Oh, MARK Austin.

Sorry to intrude ladies.

sorry but squatting in the back of a van sounds a bit gross, conjures up kind of toilet activity which you don’t want to picture, even if it is Mark Austin.
