#poem #poetry #amwriting bloody labour

so I'm standing outside having a fag
because you have to these days
on account of tony blair

and this pair of low life chancers
come balling down the street
'has anyone seen charlie
with a beard'

well I haven't
I'd say if I had
and I'd tell him to run

she's as rough as NSU
and he ain't the sort to take home
to your mum

and having no class
they start the old
'have you got a fag' routine

no I ain't

well I have
it's hanging from my mouth
but I rolled it for myself
not for you

and they start the game
'some people'

and I think
some people are better than you'
