Lord Adonis

Lord Adonis! My you have a nerve. Ah!
Would that you took the title of Minerva.
(A female, yes, but let us not belabour.
It's hard to tell the difference with New Labour).
Thus might we get for this benighted nation
Some common sense in public education.
My Lord Minerva, sipping wisdom's cup
Instead of levelling down would level up.
