In the week the box office opened on Sir Cliff's Heathcliff...

Wuthering Heist

Scrawny and sallow as watered-down soy,

Sprightly he flounders, the principal Koi.

Fans paralysed in a rictus of joy

Heathcliff. Sir Heathcliff.

Oh Cathy. Oh Boy.

Cynics may grumble but let's persevere,

Prancing around in our fifty-third year.

Hey Kids! Why don't we just do the show here?

Heathcliff. Sir Heathcliff.

Oh Cathy. Oh dear.

Hereby give notice of book sacrificed.

Bronte Society. This is a heist.

Slip in a song and they may be enticed.

Heathcliff. Sir Heathcliff.

Oh Cathy. Oh Christ.

Ghostly and mostly, it's heard on the moor.

Starts in a whine and ends up as a roar.

Hey there's a red London bus at the door.

Cathy? No Una.

We met once before.

Pop Kids today must be thick as a plank.

Sing "Living Doll" and their faces go blank.

Bachelor Boys do it crying to the bank.

Heathcliff, Sir ET

Call home or call Hank.

Martin Newell
