I recently read some words by Karl, not Marx,
“or any of his brothers” – as Margaret Thatcher
once said to Norman Tebbit’s bike.
It was Karl Popper’s page-time, having a pop
at Wittgenstein about something
to do with the rules of games maybe
like when language plays football.
And Immanuel Kant of Königsberg
was never once drawn away from home
to support Königsberg FC. *
