Tuesday in Tooting

This is far too early
and
nope, no and,
it’s just too early,

Lockdownitus is getting to me
my ears are twitching
someone’s talking about me
and it’s only
twenty-five past three,
far too fukin early for me.

But the moment passes into obsidian,
oblivion, word constipation?

seems like Lockdown’s a cure for every
situation that arises for this government
of the day,

did I say
it was far too early?
