The heart of the matter by Graham Greene. Hardcover book.

Just when you thought
this story was ended

(The Graham Greene story).
Then I bought this book
for my inventory.

Graham Greene’s haven’t made

As a matter of fact
I’ve got unsold stock.
So why buy more
when plenty I’ve got?

Published by,
Compact Books
Part of a series,
Which great looks

The series began with
Greene, Orwell and Waugh
Then Burgess, Kafka
and a few more.

The theory is
to collect a few,
Uniform editions
and close to new.

Shelve them together
at a book fair.
(Clunes booktown,
I’ll be there).

So I’ll become
the booktown source
Huc and Gabet
“The Greene force”

i now hear the call.
No longer will it be
