Here’s Your Newtube, or, Hitler Moustache

Milgram’s on telly
Davina says “wrong answer” so
The man writhes.
Dead stops, Griffin –
“Anne Frank should’ve dug a better one”, with
The perseverance of a herring?
Common sense comes in comedic form,
Chinese architects whip
Bamboo through empty air
Art is
Kids, someone is lying –
Heads roll on penalty boxes
Better say sorry,
Or we’ll stop looking.
And me – ten storeys up
A botched plan for balance
I can see
Eaten miles.
Believe it; Milgram’s on telly, and
Sparks crack nails.
