Description: Broadside Poem, 17.5 x 24 inches; folded. Yellow paper with black print. London: Turret-Books, (no date). Slightly wear along top-edge, still a very good(+) copy, shrink wrapped on foam core board.

Comments: Poem reads: "Nine completely naked girls / Will dance all Sunday afternoon / On the tomb of the Unknown Conscientious Objector. / In keeping with tradition / Their profitable mounds will be close shaves; / There will, however, be no posing. / Goose flesh will rise to music: / A boring medley of old time favourites / Played by the All White Ocarina Ensemble / Under the direction of The Earl of Shawlsburry. / At three p.m. a blind war-hero / Driven insane by pounding rhythms, / Will clamber onto the plinth, screaming: 'GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU?' / The naked girls will trample him to death. / Naturally, the police will be represented: / High in the freezing summer air / Sixteen smiling constables will spray the crown / With LSD from US Army Helicopters; / And when the dreamy vapour beads their hair / Oxfam enthusiasts will eat old ladies selling Peace News - / Raw. At four, The People's Candidate, / Hot from the loss of his deposit in Bournemouth West - / Will speak. His theme: / 'Council Housing for Homosexuals - A Beginning.' / Next day The Daily Telegraph will ask: / 'Must We Parents Be Insulted?" The children laugh and nod their heads. / A spastic faints outside the National Gallery. / Night falls. The skill is filled with weeping reds."

I just received my book today, and I wanted to thank you for the very prompt shipping. I was especially happy (and a little surprised) to see that you upgraded the shipment to UPS Ground. As to the condition of the book you are right; it is a solid Very Good, at least. Thank you all around for your professionalism. - J.N.
