Clive James Poem

This is a deliciously funny poem by Clive James about a writer's professional jealousy that the Times reprinted in their blog. It's old and I've heard it before, but it's still funny! It begins:

The book of my enemy has been remaindered
And I am pleased.
... read the rest of the poem

Geoff once told me this one. I don't know where it comes from. It's short and pretty funny, too. It goes something like this:

I am siting in the smallest room in the house
with your review of my book before me
soon it will be behind me...
