Island Life by David Slack

Nagged To Death

So. Farewell
Ian Fraser

“Sold to the man talking to himself.”

That was your catchphrase
In a TV commercial for
The BNZ.

You stood in an auction ring
As you spoke to us
With your back
To the auctioneer.

How we all laughed
When you put your
Hand up
To make a point
About sensible
And ended up buying
A horse.

Once again,
You probably wish
You hadn’t put your
Hand up.
