Bellyache

They’re cancelling us out
and
this is what this is about,
the cancelling out,
wiping the slate clean
and what does that mean?

Erasure?

when it’s all gone
the socialising,
the eating pies in Greggs
the pint in the pub
sometimes with pub grub,
what will we remember of anything
other than what we’ve been fed.
