The junk pile

Slept like a log
woke up in the fireplace,
yes
I know that joke’s ancient
but
no older than me.

Monday
and a Bank Holiday
too,
I wonder
because that’s what I do
what shall I do
today?

Waking up
woke up
wake
woke
soak in the tub
go down the pub
jeez
I’m tired already,

Christmas is cancelled
Covid has won
Santa’s in quarantine
screaming
fetch me my gun,
ho ho ho
but that’s another story.
