In Sussex

An Apollonius of Tyana lookalike
Is preaching
The Sermon on the Mount
On the summit
Of Ditchling Beacon
In Sussex.

There is a large attentive crowd.

It includes several thousand
Human beings,
Four hundred and fifty
Giant pandas,
Twenty nine
And a rear admiral
In mass vestments.

The preacher notices a giant panda.

"Animal people can be saved, too,"
He says.

The panda reaches into his sporran,
Pulls out a mobile telephone
And in a little-known mandarin dialect,
Leaves a message
On an answering machine
In Austin, Texas.
