Were they 13 wasted years? Well, here’s a teaser. 13 years, in 13 exhibits. What or who are they, and to what do they prefer?
Here’s ‘s an intro:
So, exhibit one:
Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?
That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.
So, exhibit two
Then, exhibit three:
‘Well, gentlemen, I think we all fought a good fight’ (The Spectator, 16 October 1959)
And number five:
And number six, or should that be numero six?
- And number seven:
And number eight:
To number nine:
And number ten:
Sexual intercourse began
In nineteen sixty-three
(which was rather late for me) –
Between the end of the “Chatterley” ban
And the Beatles’ first LP.
So, what or who are they? Then what on earth is Tilbrook going to say about them?
