Obviously we go for c.
You are the beast up on blocks in
that sits behind me in restaurants
calling the thin air a cunt,
that curls up Liverpool St. like a grey
You blow stacks out of the public
and there are snakes in your sleeping
bag so you shot your father.
You are drinks. I know. You go to
There are days when you just have to
make boomerang phone calls.
You ride around Russia on a pushbike,
drinking apple brandy
and you get fat every summer
Like the Eider Duck
You're making more noise than I am put
You know what Scrooge really said,
what it means when the gate creaks,
the truth about the weather report,
and your thoughts have become your
I catch you looking at me from different

You give them the gift.

Tim Gadd is
a well-known and widely avoided
electro-magnetic anomaly in southern
Tasmania. He built the first mud-brick
helicopter, has a fetish for anything
telescopic, obstructed the Suez Canal,
commissioned the giant statue of an
idiot which they found in Tonga, sucked
marmalade off the Chinese embassy in
Singapore, emerged from a glacier in
some 40,000 years, was observed mating
with a Bedouin, inserts molybdenum
strips in his shirt sleeves, illegally
amputated several limbs in Helsinki,
carefully weighs any sandwich, and was
the only person to wear a chastity belt
on The Concorde.
He likes zinc.
