Half price

You overrate
the up to date
leave me
out of date
but ‘Billy no mates’
the weekend free
and the gates are
open wide.

Step inside,
why don’t you,
see what I see,
like the view?

Disregard that life’s
too hard and
sit upon the easy chair
open up your peepers
and see what’s really there.

It’s best before you look
some more
and before the
sell by date.
