Ship of fools. All aboard!

Ship of fools. All aboard! by Vivien Noakes
EDWARD LEAR would have been delighted, though not, I think, entirely surprised that The Owl and The Pussycat was recently voted the nation�s favourite children�s poem. �Nonsense is the breath of my nostrils,� he once wrote, and his joy in absurdity reflected his whole approach to �this ludicrously whirligig life which one suffers first & laughs at afterwards�.
