For a definitive version of this work, please refer to the published source: The Dead are Bored We the dead are bored with your concerns your endless talk on radio and TV about diet and pets your fear of impotence your fascination with genealogy your colour photos taken on holiday in Africa: speak for us now or condemn us all by your tiny fears your politeness about customs and magical beliefs. Listen, only this is magic – human and rhino, two animals conjoined. When we depart and clumsy birds mop the plain you see there your own remains. Philip Neilsen
