On learning of the arrival of sharks and dolphins in the Bay of Biscay

What’s that blip upon the radar?

[To the tune Cwm Rhondda]

 

What’s that blip upon the radar?

Sharks and Dolphins in the bay.

Are they sent there by Darth Vader?

Or by Putin? Who can say?

Sharks and Dolphins

Sharks and Dolphins

Do you think they’re here to stay?

Or in winter will they go away?

Captain’s orders

Close the borders.

Once they are in they will not go away

I blinked and like the Beeb I missed Inglot and Lindsted

With slight adjustments, my lament at missing a tennis match can be sung to either of two beautiful pieces of music.

 

When sung to Guide me O Thou Great Deliverer

 

Inglot Lindsted Dodig Melo

Number Two seeds lose in three

Late night drama has unfolded

Far too late for me to see

Late night drama

Late night drama

Far too late for me to see

Me to see

Even if I switch to BBC

 

When sung to Deutschland Deutschland Uber Alles

Synchronicity

Positive synchronicity
Is not like Walter Mitty
But you might come unstuck
If you think it’s Good Luck
Synchronicity is a reminder
There is no before or behinder
Nor for the Cosmic Clock
A cosmic winder
