Your Poem: GrandNationalPassionFor Fashion.

I NOTE with some amusement the letters received regarding the prize of a car being given to an `outsider'.The following rhyme is for all of us who might just not care less ...

There's such a big commotion About this girl that won a car You'd think it was a travestyThat she came here from afarThey castigate the judges Say the whole thing was unfair A model wins this super prize Because she knew just what to wearShe didn't follow local rules Did not heed the local planHer body wasn't orange She wasn't wearing her fake tan The judges should be fashion blind Could be binmen,cooks or farmers Then perhaps a local scouse girl Would have won -in pink pyjamasIan Kenyon, Huyton
