The Hallway. From The Outside An Ordinary House.
A Great House, True. 483 Rooms.
Each One With Its Own Marble Wash Bassin And Douche.
Bide As It’s Known.
But Inside … And The Positions Are Reversed.
A Human Failing, Some Say A Disease, But A Disease That Sir Francis Dashwood Knew And Used Well.
Upstairs, Inside And A Revelation, It’s A Discotheque.
No, No, Err … There Are Paintings … Real … And Look Here! A Rare 17th Century Masterpiece.
And If I Can Scrape A Little Of It Of, Beneath I Can Find Hidden … A 14th Century Underpiece.
Made Entirely Of Tiny Pieces Of Eggshell.
This Lurid Work Has Caused Controvesary In The World Of Embroidery And Anthropology.
No, I’ll Say It Again; Anthropolopology.
No Quite Possibly Making Anthropole.
No, I Mean An Epilog …
It Has Enthralled Distinguished Professors And In Laymans Language,
It’s Blinking Well Baffling,
But To Be More Obtusely; Buggered If I Know.
Yes, Buggered IF I Know.
And That’s All We’ve Been So Far.
From Experts In 14th Century Painting Renaissance Greengrocers, And Recently Revived Members Of The Public.
Buggered If I Know.
Vivian Stanshall, About 3 O’clock In The Morning, Oxfordshire 1973. Goodnight!
