Double act

Joined at the hip
they both slip into
the same old routine,
it’s
God save the Queen
but we go first.

The longer this goes on
the shorter our fuses
become
and..?
and that’s the question to pose
but
I don’t know
they don’t know
no one knows,

feels like I’m in Whateverland
and I want to get back to Neverland,
but I can’t even get there overland
and they’ve cancelled all the flights.
