The Tank Engine Sonnet


Ringo Starr’s childhood house in a run-down part of Liverpool is boarded up and about to be demolished.

A handful of people are lobbying to have it listed and one wag even went as far as to say that it would be like knocking Shakespeare’s house down.

I’m sorry? It’s more akin to knocking down Andrew Ridgeley’s old house, or one once lived in by the other bloke from Bros.
