Socially adept

He got done over
or rather run over
by an ambulance


no good me saying,
a good job the ambulance is
already here,

people look at you queerly
when you’re stating the obvious.

I carried on with the shopping
had to pop into Asda and
get something for dinner,

he’ll be getting hospital food
for some time,

a helluva way to save on the
grocery bill.
