It feels like there’s a bolt in my back
and some crazy nut’s tightening the nut
it may be a fancy but I fancy it’s not,
some nut’s definitely got
it in for me
Anyhow this pain will pass as most pains do
if I sit and chew on
They said I can’t use that registered name
so I told them,
tell me that one again,
and for a while I smile
pain and Panadol free.
It’s home time on the Central line,
but fukin feral cats earlier in the day
I sway to the movements of the tube on the track
and the pig of a pain comes back.
