Seen elsewhere 'Jeremy Hunt calling for the new leader to be trustworthy. Is there some 3rd candidate no one knows about?'

Quiet thought come floating down
 And settle softly to the ground
 Like golden autumn leaves around my feet
 I touched them and they burst apart with sweet memories
 Sweet memories
 Of holding hands and red bouquets
 And twilight trimmed in purple haze
 And laughing eyes and simple ways
 And quiet nights and gentle days with you

 Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
 Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine

(The sweet, sweet memories you've given me
You can't beat the memories you've given me)
Take one fresh and tender kiss,
Add one stolen night of bliss,
One girl; one boy; some grief; some joy:
Memories are made of this.
Don't forget a small moonbeam.
Fold it lightly with a dream.
Your lips and mine,
Two sips of wine:
Memories are made of this.

I've decided that I hope they choose Boris Johnson - perhaps a PM who is an card-carrying incompetent lying fuckwit will prove to be the most effective means of killing off Brexit and also his own party in its current format, since it seems large chunks of the Tory-party membership have largely succumbed to Brexit-mania to the extent of zealotry.

Listening to some of the drivel being directed at Tory party members would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic.

Bloodline by Sidney Sheldon

Old friends, old friends,
Sat on their park bench like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass
Falls on the round toes
of the high shoes of the old friends

Old friends, winter companions, the old men
Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sun
The sounds of the city sifting through trees
Settles like dust on the shoulders of the old friends

Can you imagine us years from today,
Sharing a park bench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy

Old friends, memory brushes the same years,
Silently sharing the same fears

The Books of Blood - Clive Barker

I've been to Hollywood, I've been to redwood
I crossed the ocean for a heart of gold
I've been admired by, it's such a fine light
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old

Keep me searching for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old
