It had been bugging me for months so I took a clipping down to the Garden Centre.
What’s it called? I asked. What’s its botanical name?
I didn’t much like the sound of it.
So I asked its common name.
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, the man said.
I very much liked the sound of that.
so I went home and dubbed it with my royal ruler.
Henceforth you shall be known as Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, I announced with a clipped classy accent.
It sounded like a song.
Like something from ‘Revolver’.
