Ms. Manitoba reminds us that we both have shamefully neglected the brilliant Brendan Behan in our vasty readings, although we say "Phthbbptht!" and point out that this snippet, at least, lingers in our ancient and tired brain to remind us that we must have read Behan sometime.
"Never throw stones at your mother,As soon as we're done with this year's book list, we swear - Behan's next.
You'll be sorry for it when she's dead,
Never throw stones at your mother,
Throw bricks at your father instead."
