Boris the Brazen Offers a Lesson in Filial Piety

by Philip Kitcher

“‘Ridiculous’: opponents pour scorn on Boris Johnson’s plan to knight his father”
The Guardian

Large donations to the nation
should receive a rich reward:
elevation in your station
to become a Knight or Lord.

Dad deserves the highest honors,
every Briton should agree—
he outstrips all other donors
with his greatest gift … that’s ME!
