Connecting rooms

Whatever you’re given today
will
be taken away and tomorrow?
well
tomorrow you’ll be back
begging for more
and
that’s sod’s law.

axioms to crack your bones
and taxes then
to take your homes,

cardboard’s ‘cheap as chips’
free
from local council skips.

Underneath a Croydon sky
watching the 747’s fly by
why me?

Where do I fit in to this painting?

‘you ain’t in’
airbrushed and pushed aside
so
long and thanks for the ride

Roy rogers himself and you can make
of that what you will and
you will.
