An Eye Cast In Aspic

Who said that?
Am I sure it was Noel Coward
Or some such wag
Graham Greene maybe
AA Gill ?
He wishes...
One of those jolly guys used to polishing porcelain
With their pristeen fingers
And none of them dishes anymore
Observing only and so sore
Like bulls' eyes gotten from the butchers
Placed squeamish on the petri
Watching a scalpel's approach
Complaining englishly
As critics
To a blunt life
But what does it mean? 
What does it mean?
