Nom Domittis

Ed, now lettest thou thy servants depart in peace,
according to thy pledge.
For mine eyes have seen thy taxation.
Which thou art prepared
to impose on all income-maximising people;
To be a tax to burden the nations
and the downfall of the London property market.


  1. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit
    As it was in the beginning, is now, and shall be for ever. Amen.

  2. I always thought Mr Burgon’s musical piece was about tinkers, tailors, soldiers and spys, not nom doms.
