284. the little people

the Coca Cola guy’s

given them the nod

& now they’re deconstructing

Ranulph’s blackened cindery

fingers with toffee hammers

and Quick-unpicks.


tomorrow they’re off to the  

icy bus shelters to cheer his mates

with Lo-Cost cider

and some of that

green green grass of home.

Hallelujah !

The season of goodwill.
