"In many ways," muses the poet laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, "he's very human." Now, who could we possibly be talking about? A gorilla at London Zoo? A goat? Certainly, some member of the animal kingdom for whom she has a soft spot.
Ms Duffy, of whom I thought better, was referring to footballer David Beckham, to whose ankle, and its torn Achilles tendon, she HAS WRITTEN A POEM.
Give me strength.
