Fatberg

 

I am a fatberg through and through,

Capricious, snout-fair, blonde:

I’m thick with grease, and peddle you

Pure lies. Do not respond:

I’m clogging up the nation’s gizzard,

A sillytonian, piggy wizard.

 

I am a fatberg, made of pudge

And silting up your sewers:

A rouker filled with stodge and fudge,

And I tell you this, dear viewers –

I am a rouzy-bouzy chap,

And full of most melodious crap.

 

I am a fatberg. Reams of gunk

Have poured across my tongue –

I’m full of fresh, quacksalver spunk,

Of hard and off-white dung –

Believe it when I shift my lips,

And out the fatberg fibber tips.

 

I am a fatberg. See my girth,

And watch me peacockize:

There isn’t anyone on Earth

So blithe when telling lies.

Accept my Latin quips for free,

And drown inside my sea of ghee.

Boris Johnson has repeated the campaign pledge that Brexit will bring £350 million a week for the NHS. A huge agglomeration of fat, the weight of 11 double-decker buses, is blocking a London sewer, under Whitechapel Road (a museum has offered to display part of it). A University of York linguist has produced a list of 30 forgotten words that might be returned to the language; they include snout-fair, sillytonian, rouker, peacockize, rouzy-bouzy and quacksalver.
