This witty, surreal and accomplished iOTA Shot Award pamphlet by Mark Fiddes was launched to a packed audience at Keats House. and the author wishes the Royal Horticultural Society many peaceful summers.. read the first stanza of the title poem here:
The Chelsea Flower Show Massacre
The butterflies get in for free,
like the Queen, ex officio.
For bankers it’s a hundred quid
per slick Savile Row carapace.
Same again for their plus guests
cocooned in crushed silk Gucci
thrilling to every sip of Moet
and the quadrille of canapés.
