Overheard Conversations Part 2

Michael Bonner

2. "Yeah, everyone's happy now, but sooner or later it's going to go all Lord Of The Flies. Mark my words."

3. "I'm less pissed than I was last night, because I can remember this."

4. Heard over a security walkie-talkie: "Child Control to the Poetry Arena!"

5. "Don't squeeze that, it's my mother's."

9. "What kind of parent takes a toddler to a Marcus Garvey reading?"

10. Man walking away from the cabaret tent: "I'd rather be at a Michael Barrymore pool party."
