Cocoa Pop

Time drops its hints on me and
like pigeons shitting on the Queens
cavalry,
no charge.

At present, the funeral industry does not excite me
they’re still trying though to sell me a policy.

But we’re all getting ancient,
monuments to compound interest,

and I expect even if I’m not an expert
that after Brexit
we’ll ditch the decimal
in favour of the Imperial Measure
