No Rush for Rishi

by Nora Jay

“Boris Johnson fails to deny he is refusing to take [former chancellor] Rishi Sunak’s calls”
The Guardian

This is an undertaking I
Am also failing to deny.
I’ve never said I won’t not speak
When Sunak calls. Or not this week.
Nor have I opted to negate
The claim I haven’t made him wait
While playing a perhaps not new
Recording of “Hung Up On You.”
