In Memoriam, Sir Robin Day

1 Conversation

(With apologies to EJ Thribb)

So farewell, then, Sir Robin Day:

King of Question Time,

Prince of the Polka-dot bow tie.

Thick specs dance no more on beetled brow

And ministers sleep sounder in their beds.

You once called Sir John Nott

A 'here today, gone tomorrow politician';

But Nott is here today

While Day is not.
