Poem by Terry Jones from 1980s.
They didn’t want it in London.
There are too many folk there (with friends),.
And they couldn’t go and put it near Brighton,.
Because that’s where they spend their week-ends..
They ruled out all places near Windsor.
Where you just don’t know who it offends,.
And Berkshire is frightfully pretty.
And so are the Downs and the Thames..
The Chilterns are too full of tourists.
On whom our whole country depends,.
And Kent has such lovely houses,.
And it’s just far too wet in the Fens.
And Henley and Sidcup and Finchley.
Are all places one…. somehow …. defends….
So they thought that they’d dump it in Evesham,.
Just where the rainbow ends.
