It actually consists of seven short poems, and it is entitled The Working Week. Here’s a topical little number:
The sun roof in the miniaturesedan isjust right (theysay) for the two Klansmen’spointy head gear.As they pass, their hats,pinnacles of a big top,alert the pale childrenwho laugh at this sartorialconvenience.Gasoline in the boot.
Let me know if you want one, or, I believe, the whole batch may be obtained from Rupert. Martin Stannard reviewed the batch before mine was added, here , and he adds:
For the price of sending your email address to Stride (http://stridemagazine.co.uk/) these little booklets, and I assume the other dozen or so that were published last year, can each be yours as a PDF to print and fold. The folding is easy and fun – a child could do it. But be careful: at one point in the process you will need scissors. Mind those pointy bits and sharp edges! Anyway, if I can do it, it must be easy. There is a good instruction video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21qi9ZcQVto
If you are in the UK and would like to avoid the downloading, the printing, and the folding (in other words, a lot of the fun) a stamped and self-addressed envelope to Stride’s earthbound address will do the trick: 4B Tremayne Close, Devoran, Cornwall TR3 6QE. Mark your envelope “In praise of the Smallminded” and tell the publisher which publications you want. A normal stamp will get you up to four booklets.
Billy Mills reviewed the batch, now including mine, here.Thanks Rupert: keep folding!
