Soft Shoe Shuffle

The soft shoe shuffle
Of ghosts.
The grunt nosed trouble
For the most,
Who’re relying,
On drying
Conditions.
Dreaming of toast.
The parliamentary kerfuffle
Is nowt,
To those
Who are learn-ed,
Knowest most.

Football Shaped

When all we cared
Was kerby kick-abouts
When the world was football-shaped
When the Alsatian’s tooth
Was the proof
We knew
That
As today
The Earth was ruled
By those who’d
Have it flat

Straight

It’s not
My fault
You’re a fucking nightmare
With your click
Tap heels
And straight hair
Cultural reappropriation
Has been
Going on
For years

Tabs Out

With a tab on
He contemplates
The tab behind the bar
He contemplates
The tabs in folders
He shoulders
The things
He should have done
Then
To balance it up
The next drinks
Are one the smaller one

The State of Homelessness

The state
Lies about the problem
They state
That the problem lies
With otherwise
And here lies the problem

And here lies the problem
