From The Ambridge Observer- essential reading for all those interested in Ambridge


The Ambridge Socialist Poet in Residence at The Bull, Nicholas Lezard has composed a new verse:


I am the ghost in the gin

I will make you bark, and chase sheep

I will make you get lost for weeks in a flood

Of gin

Your owners will grieve for you

Your hair will become wiry

You will become unaccountably enthusiastic in the presence of strangers

You will eat from a bowl on the floor

But no one will pat you on the head.

No, no one will ever pat you on the head

Unless you actually become a dog

After drinking my gin
