11 carat roughcut

I have heard it comes
to those that wait,
well
I’ve waited and seen
reinstated
and been
disappointed.

There’s a wind blowing in
I would say
and
it’s already well on the way,
that
take, take, take,
can take that as read.

It interests me,
the duplicity
but
not that much
because
they’re amateurs.

I give and know
that when you get
what you give
and what you give is
fuck all,
you get what you give,

head in the sand
or head up your arse
it all reminds me of
a Brian Rix
farce.

I’m heading to the ‘Harold Pinter’
off Piccadilly,
where the performance
will be hopefully more
Professional.
