Open 9-5 except for weekends

 
 
There’s the thrift shop and
that’s the pop the weasel shop,
 
this is the high street
a bit down on its luck
and these are the councilors
who don’t give a fuck.
 
(Grammarly suggests I put a question mark after fuck,
so I did, fuck, off Grammarly)
 
I am wondering when
they’ll start building again
or have we run out of bricks?
 
 
The economy appears to have had
a hysterectomy and
someone will kill me for this.
