(For Art Toynbee)

Art Toynbee in a lift
met Giddens
That puffed-up absurdist
Who gave a Big Job to that Eejit,
John Gray,
And talked and squawked idle nonsense,
About
The Third Way.

But Centre-Left intellectuals
I've also encountered
That smug man, Geoff Mulgan,
At dinner
In Balliol
During the rent-strike
"Plus ša change", he sniggered
Pleased with himself
So very sophisticated...
Mr Tony's very own
Sunday Supplement Intellectual
