Fresh Salman, grilled

Prufrock of Prufrock’s Page rocks. Go read the whole thing:

“Well, if Shalimar won’t leave you alone, there it is, I said.
What you get reviewed for if you don’t want to be profiled?
HURRY UP PLEASE IT’S TIME FOR THE SHORTLIST
Well, that Sunday Boonyi Kaul was on the hill, she had a hot lunch,
And she asked me to write it down, to get the beauty of it hot–
HURRY UP PLEASE IT’S TIME FOR THE SHORTLIST
HURRY UP PLEASE IT’S TIME FOR THE SHORTLIST
Goonight Julian. Goonight Zadie. Goonight Kazuo. Goonight.
Ta ta. Goonight. Goonight.
Good night, awards jury, good night, sweet jury, good night, good night.

If there was a Booker
And also the prize ceremony
And accolades
One by one
Drip drop drip drop drop drop drop
But there is no Booker.”
