Tell, Mighty Wit, how the highest in forethought and,That tremendous plus, The Science,Saw off our panic and Globed vexationUntil a drape of calmness furled around the earthAnd beckoned a new and greater normal into each lifeFor which we give plenty gratitude and payWillingly for the vict' ry triumphMerited by these wisest gods. Pandemonium is an epic mock-heroic poem, written in response to the pandemic with all the anger and wit that Armando Iannucci brings to his vision of contemporary events. It tells the story of how Orbis Rex, Young Matt and his Circle of Friends, Queen Dido and the blind Dom' nic did battle with ' a wet and withered bat' from Wuhan.
I think he' s brilliant, very funny. His is exactly the sort of hilarious yet civilising brain that does the world good. Whatever he says on Twitter, I always think: ' This is wisdom. ' " -- David Mitchell It' s a really funny poem. . . Jonathan Swift would approve -- Samira Ahmed, BBC Front Row
Armando Iannucci co-wrote THE DAY TODAY and the various Alan Partridge programmes for BBC including the BAFTA award-winning last series. He hosts his own show - SATURDAY NIGHT ARMISTICE and also writes a regular column in the GUARDIAN.
