Lapis Lazuli

Rating: 3.3

(For Harry Clifton)

I HAVE heard that hysterical women say
They are sick of the palette and fiddle-bow.

For everybody knows or else should know
That if nothing drastic is done
Aeroplane and Zeppelin will come out.
Pitch like King Billy bomb-balls in
Until the town lie beaten flat.
