Cobra spit

Rise and shine time
is whatever time you want it to be,
mine’s in about three weeks’ time.

The longer this continues
the more confused I’ll be.

We know today is Monday
and tomorrow will follow on
but
can you remember Saturday
and has it all gone wrong?

are we living in hope or in London,
are they one and the same?

Boris is back in the saddle
we’re in a canoe with no paddle,
and in
reduced circumstances
we are somewhat or
faintly Victorian
but if you’re reading the
Guardian
you’ll never notice.
