On receiving tickets for Cheltenham Literature Festival

Among the bills, the court orders, a "threat" and a fine,
Rests a little white letter that is simply devine.

It has my attention where the others have failed,
(Having disputed my defaults, I refuse to be jailed).

Unseeling excitement and shredding the rest,
Much to my judge, the bank and BT's behest.

A little white letter I got through the post,
Contained a perfectly unperforated passage of hosts.

Escorted along by three national treasures,
I’m fleeing to Cheltenham for some literary pleasures.
