The stanza was written a day after we had heard from some pollsters that the Tories had increased their lead, with just three weeks to go before the General Election. And this was the day on which Mr Toad was about to launch the Tory manifesto. And there was a lot of rain falling, as well as lies being broadcast.
The Parrot saw the danger to the UK of all this flooding, remembering Noah, but the Toad had no thought of danger, or of the UK. He was still thinking strange Gollum thoughts.
