The Corner

The one and only.

London Calling, For Aluminum Bats



Text  



Upon hearing that cudgel sales are up about 5,000 percent in the United Kingdom, I was inspired to write a couple of new verses to The Clash’s “London Calling.”

London calling, for aluminum bats
The riots will stop, if we just raise the VAT.
London calling, for telescoping batons
The yobs in St. James, are clubbing the swans.
I suspect we have some half-decent lyricists lurking amidst the Corner commentariat. So why not write a couplet or two in the comments section?
