...it is not over yet18th September 2014

Dear Alex,

Of course just now I cannot know
if I am to congratulate you or
offer condolences.

But it seemed an opportune moment,
the calm before the storm perhaps
to remind you it is not over yet.

You broke the rules by which
you should have played
but this was no ordinary game,

you sensed they could be made elastic,
and for now you have been proved right.

By now your eyes are firmly set
on the prize and the adulation

but do remember my last letter,
sitting now with the SPSO
as they wonder what to do with it.

With kind regards
