Mick

ye, hail the latest OBE!

Obey his orders now

 when he commands you to come out for walks; you better be ready like a battalion

 

Congrats on your OBE

I couldn't help but think of the pantomime when I saw the news on Twitter

Did they add a crown to it? and was it sparkling like the sun?

or a medal perhaps?

did you have tea with the queen already!?

How cool!

 

When i see you again on the streets of Brighton

or perhaps on your lovely IDS walks

sometime in the near future

i will sure give you a mighty salute

but deep down in my heart, you know I want you written into 2021 panto, right?

hopefully, Miquel is cooking something cool already

with a bowl of popcorn, I will gladly watch it 

ye, hail the latest OBE!
