Him and I

The TV and radio airways are now awash
With colloquial accents, no longer posh
Scouse and Geordie slang pervade the ears
And Brummie talk will bring a man to tears
Welsh and Scottish tones dispense the news
Guttural pronouncements from their shoes
The new name for this invasion of your home
Known as I.V.S. or irritable vowel syndrome
