Basements

Sucking on spangles
licking the colours
off Smarties
much better for me
than drugs or
sex parties,
hmm
wait..
much better for me
than scones or
tea parties
ah
that’s it
a little bit of editing
a sherbet dab
and gelatine

many ways for us to sin
and
the point is not to win
it’s the taking part
that counts.
