Treasure Island

Phil Soar

(28.06.1952)

Soap Opera


The man stood on his soap box,
And surveyed the swelling crowd,
Then looking up into the sky,
Began to say aloud:
'I have no time for innocence,
No need for fornication,
I have no need to take a pee,
When the train is in the station.
I have no need to pray to god,
No need to thank the lord,
I'm out to screw the taxmen,
For all they can afford,
But first I need financial aid,
And my friends that comes from you',
He looked down at the swelling crowd,
But all they said was 'coo'

They were all pigeons

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
