He said it, my God he said it!

Brazen-faced, to the watching nation

‘They should not leak’, he said

‘After all, they are servants of the Crown’.

Leaking in public?  How revolting!

And where would it begin?

A seepage from the ears perhaps?

Or a welling-up from beneath

All those virginal starched collars?

Or would it occur in the nether regions?

Visible only as a steady trickle

Down around the ankles.

A telephoned enquiry brought no joy;

‘I can assure you, Sir, we have

No leaking Civil Servants here

Why don’t you try MI 5’
