DO I LOVE REGINALD ARKELL .......says Dr. Sigmund T. Schukelgruber

" Bridge Without Sighs " is without doubt one of the best books ever written about this amazing but tantalisingly frustrating game. The contents of this rare old book are a delight..... full of wonderful poems, many of which are complemented by the truly stunning artwork of George Whitelaw. To be without this book ought to be one of the biggest regrets in your life. So let's look at one of my favourites,  which I hope you will savour and enjoy.......

Bridge And Golf

Bridge is a game that people play
At every golf club, every day.
The language used at either game
Is, speaking coarsely, much the same.
( We use the same opprobrious terms
When cutting cards or killing worms.)
A colonel who goes up in smoke,
Because that blasted caddie spoke,
Says much the same if you revoke.
