BFM Sunday to Roger mcGough
Greetings morning. Henry bumbles in - terupting erection; let the slightly silly show begin. Stay in bed till culture bunker shuts the door on deafening laughter godhead. Getting dressed feeling theosophic, culture is recognising art within. Before eating Brunch, Jarah gives thanks. Waipapa is confused; Parone holding toast aloft on one finger. Around Mid-day Zambesi jazz knocks once, and comes in. Nice.

101$25,000 cocktails with (Cocksucker) Clinton. (dosen't Clinton get others to do the cocksucking for him?) money well spent on lawyers and scriptwriters - that's why he tours ! - when he was in, but now he's out and gw (not gee whizz) is in - guess that's one way to get a bush in charge of the whitehouse

105Where are our values; where have they gone?
Rito, our child, mother and I nuture We; Awhirito Ae, as a whanau We florish Ae, Pa Harakeke!
To our Tupuna, the Harakeke Was useful, vital We can create so many articles: Kete, Kono Hinaki, Hu Tuwhara, Takapu Piupiu, and most beautiful of all Korowai.

"Haere, E noho Bring your tools Makoi, Kota, Maripi; Let us prepare the Harakeke"
Girl aquire and retain these skills For we the master weavers Must pass these arts on.
Girl sit and learn and watch For you must master mental agility, And patience.
Girl Observance, Tapu is the art; Tapu is the Harakeke. One day you will pass on these traditions.

You would stone me when I do no wrong? Babe born outside wedlock.
My only crime was to find love so soon after his travestying fist
I shall wean the child; need determines my longevity.
Soon, soon my milk will curdle with my blood.
This time he will throw stones he will determine my suffering
Waist deep in shame not too short, just long enough.
Whilst a womens worth is judged by beauty; life is valued less. Miss universe, no super women, stand impeccably dressed.
your analogy headlines could be:
Beauty queens say better best dressed than dead!
Tantrum X smashes babes bottle
