Denmark smells sweeter

This being not what it’s cracked up to be
we conclude that it must be a tragedy,
and Faust writes a note to agree with the vote.

In ‘that other place’
my face doesn’t fit
and never will,
not as long as they sit
on their arses
and waffle on
as if nothing is wrong.

Does anyone remember
‘Play for Today?’
well
that was yesterday
and
the years before then
but
they should do a rerun
because
it’s all relevant.
