I was sad when the queen died.
I’m kinda indifferent about the Royal Family, as it goes.
But as with all nice(ish) people.
I don’t welcome sadness or sad events.
The Queen is Dead.
There’s an obvious, 30-year-old Smiths reference.
And I did smile wryly at two consecutive comments that I saw on some online forum or other this week.
The first comment was:
“How poignant that Morrissey.
Over 30 years ago.
Was able to predict this week’s albeit very sad events.
‘Quite the Nostradamus.”
The second comment:
“Yes but Morrissey doesn’t always get it right, does he?
‘There is a Light that Never Goes Out’ is on the same album.
And with the cost of fucking electricity that will clearly be proven a load of old bollocks this winter.”
