Fine words

First published in Letters

MANY years ago I was regularly helped to maintain the semi-technical manufacturing plants, within a building called the Engineering Laboratory at Huddersfield’s ICI works, by an elderly gentleman who was also the president of the local Burns society. The Burns group were active and vocal around Easter. What comes readily to mind is the Burns poem which was among my favourites and is the one with the words in it that say, “Man’s inhumanity to man, makes countless thousands mourn.” I don’t claim to be quoting the words without error, but I do care very deeply for the sentiment and I agree with it.

What possesses people to write in to the local paper with stories like this?

I woke up this morning and, inexplicably, I fancied having my corn flakes WITHOUT milk. I know, I shall pen a letter to my local newspaper about this.
