Does not include

Why, my dear octagenarian Jewish friend,/ Does the menagerie of miniscule glass animals/ On top of your tv set not include a skunk?

To Marvinthefish
Warm wishes
Michael Longley

Speaking of famous people (as I was yesterday [if you count Jon T Njardarson as a famous person]) that I've met, I bumped into Michael Longley at a graduation ceremony a few years ago. Happily I had my book of poetry with me, and I got him to sign it for me.

Link . Recently Michael Longley met the Queen, as she was touring around the UK on her Jubilee tour.

Too many capital letters in that last sentence.
