I have an itchy eye (a weak stream)

I have an itchy eye
and the angel on my shoulder
looks and sounds
like Richard Wattis
highpitched when alarmed
the devil on my left knee
however
is as yet unfamiliar
though he sounds
somewhat like
one of Maggie’s
cabinet members
around the time
the Sheffield was hit,
possibly a generic type
of weak chinned
minor villain
from a 1960s
paperback spy novel
a Corgi perhaps
with a pretentious
“ex libris” sticker
on the inside cover
