Prep time

There’s no accounting for
taste
waste,
paste that on the blackboard,
billboard
still bored?
be a fish.

I wish
but it seldom works,
maybe my wish
needs batteries.

Later,

back to the bowels of the earth,
work and a dearth of humour
but
there’s a rumour that it’s nearly
Christmas,

it’s
funny how
the lights dimmed yesterday
though.
