Encoded in this pebble that I found
one May Day morn, (I swear to you it’s true),
are secrets that have lain upon the ground
for aeons. I’ve decrypted them for you.
Some cosmic goldfish from the planet Tanq
arrived on Earth before Mankind was born,
and their King Bub’s the one we have to thank
for choosing me to hail his Second Dawn.
His aquaverberations race through space,
entangling when they meet time’s line and hook;
Bub’s ichthyoid equations, all in base
thirteen, are in my new mind-blowing book.
It will transform your life, as it did mine.
It’s yours for only £19.99!*
