Cameras are not permitted

On Thursday evening
we were drinking champagne
in the imposing library
of the Reform Club.

I thought you might like to see
where Phileas Fogg set off
on his journey around the world.

I got my camera out
and was immediately surrounded
by uniformed staff waving their hands
in a distressed way.

Cameras and other new-fangled technology
are not permitted in the Reform Club.

I made apologetic sounds
and MrM said
"I can't take her anywhere!"

And then we laughed
and set off down Pall Mall
to admire the sparkle of a London night.
