Tufty…

***

And now it is time to talk… Of Tufty… So called… Because of his resemblance… To the little squirrel… Whom… Along with the Green Cross Code Man… Taught us all to cross the road… Safely… Otherwise… Mister Duran… Not Duran Duran… Of Barbarella… And much later… Music fame… Duran is french… For firm or enduring… Which would make the film bad guy… Firm firm… Or even enduringly firm… Hmmm… The eponymous heroine… Played by the then underage Jane Fonda… Could well have been based on yet another Gnostic concept… Of the Barbelo… Look it up… You will not be disappointed.

***

Old Tufty… Knew nothing of all this though… Old Tufty knew nothing… Of anything… Very much… Actually… He did, though… Champion Jay Kay… And got us our Commerce ‘O’ Level… Half a year early… So he did know about… His subject… Our capabilities… And how the examination system worked… Not a bad haul… What he really didn’t know anything about… Was the future… Which he claimed… Would see us all… With increasing leisure time… The money… To enjoy that leisure time… And a cleaner… Freer world… For all… Couldn’t really have been… More wrong than that.

***

Oh… And he despised the Royal Family… Claiming they were an unwarranted drain… On the public purse… What he would have made… Of Jimmy… And Andrew… And Pee Dee… And Hazza… One can only imagine… His mantra though… Was evolution… Not revolution… So he wouldn’t have been charging the ramparts… Anytime soon… Cannot even allow him… Evolution… Actually… Even this once universally accepted… Not to say hallowed… Theory… Is now looking… To be on… Increasingly shaky ground… The fracking of our beautiful… Yet enduringly… Fragile earth… Has a lot to answer for.
