Reader’s verse

The V-C’s Sofa.
by Muckraker

Steven had an office sofa,
Which he didn’t like,
He called in all his Admin Team,
‘Get it out my sight!’
A brand new one was ordered,
No questions asked on price,
Now he has a new sofa,
Which cost a zillion but looks nice.

    Reader’s verse No. 2

    The following fully transferable song can be sung about any SMT member simply by substituting names au choix (“Wilks, huh,” etc.). It should be enjoyed to the driving rhythms of Edwin Starr’s ‘War’.

    Spier, huh, yeah
    What is he good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Spier, huh, yeah
    What is he good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it again, why’all
    Spier, huh, good God
    What is he good for?
    Absolutely nothing, listen to me
    Oh, Spier, I despise
    ‘Cause he means destruction of innocent careers
    Spier means tears to thousands of mothers’ eyes
    When their sons go to teach
    And lose their jobs
    I said, Spier, huh, good God, why’all
    What is he good for?
    Absolutely nothing, say it again
    Spier, whoa Lord
    What is he good for?
    Absolutely nothing, listen to me
    He ain’t nothing but a heart-breaker
    (Spier) friend only to the Jobcentre
    Oh, Spier he’s an enemy to all mankind
    The point of Spier blows my mind
    Spier has caused unrest
    Within the younger generation
    Induction then indebtedness
    Who wants…
    Spier, huh, etc …

    (with acknowledgements and apologies to the late Edwin Starr)
