Friday in the doghouse

There’s a lot more living to die for
and lots more of the living I
cry for,
want more?

lady on the skids
cockney
got four ‘dustbin lids’
how’s she going to cope?

The government?
fucking hope less
a cess pit
snake pit
wait a bit
that’s not right

they’re there to assist us?
no, they
computerise
and shoot us
pluck out our eyes and
fuck me
living ain’t what it used to be

I’m going fishin’

again.
