I have been able to recite the first verse of the Prostetnic Vogon
Jeltz's poem from memory since I was about twelve. That and the lyrics

my late teens when that came out). Beats Wordsworth's blooming
daffodils any day.
Hey, did you know Roddy Lumsden was a big Fatima Mansions fan? That's
true, that is.
