He keeps looking at the clock with his one good eye. Unaware that he has become a cliché, he mutters, “Oh dear. She’s late. She’s absolutely late.

Already on stage are the evening’s panel: a crow, a goose and a tiger. Even from backstage, the rabbit can hear the tiger grumbling to the two other panellists—and the rabbit can imagine that the other panellists are unhappy too….”The Conference
