„I would much prefer to be a judge than a coal miner because of the absence of falling coal.“

—  Peter Cook, Beyond the Fringe

"Sitting on the Bench" (1961)
Beyond the Fringe (1960 - 1966)
Contexto: I could have been a Judge, but I never had the Latin for the judgin'. I never had it, so I'd had it, as far as being a judge was concerned... I would much prefer to be a judge than a coal miner because of the absence of falling coal.

A Tree Telling of Orpheus (1968)
Contexto: Fire he sang,
that trees fear, and I, a tree, rejoiced in its flames.
New buds broke forth from me though it was full summer.
As though his lyre (now I knew its name)
were both frost and fire, its chords flamed
up to the crown of me.
I was seed again.
I was fern in the swamp.
I was coal.
