Next Sunday – February 2, 2020 – will be the same when written forwards or backwards in whichever date format you choose.

When the date, to be blunt
Can be put back to front
And it somehow ends up the same way

If you’re making your living off rent
So much cash rolls in
That it feels like a sin
As you’re counting the blessings you’re sent

Got up on their high horses when
They found out that Nancy
Was fond of a fancy
Ceremonial custom-made pen

Former Renault-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn’s escape has inspired internet copycats to fit themselves in boxes for musical instruments like he is reported to have done to escape house arrest.

If you find that you have lost face
And want to sneak out of some place
Then folks in the know
Suggest you don’t go
Inside an instrument case
