Clive James has two new poems in this week's New Statesman:

Nature Programme and The Emperor's Last Words.

The Emperor's Last Words is terrific, and very moving.

Here (http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/aug/05/clive-james-valedictory-poems-the-emperors-last-words)'s Alison Flood's piece on these two poems, in The Guardian. Check out the readers' comments here too -- it's always a good sign when you can go through 50 of them (and counting) before the trolls kick in. And special thanks cerises for the song quote.
