Busted Chad

 Busted Chad


the city to the smalltown to the outskirts

to the poshbit to the outskirts bus I


brings chef's offwhites in a chipfat bag

after a coupleofimports afterwork to a 


frailfaced man with uncertainbeard tothe

Pelicanhotel stop and the banging and the 


bag 'eads won't leavethe poor unstabbed

alone and my privileged solace stops 


between towerpastels and busbeeps and

they's always askin for a fiver more 


and the lift dunt work to the fifteenth floor

and he's off a pensionloan summary, a 


sadeyed triedandtested, all his working,

a patient, a forgiving giver, rattlingpills for


his ticker, a fella who just wants to shut his

own front door.
