INKY PINKIES

Camp out on pavements, these hip hip hurrahs,
Marmalade sarnies, Duchy biscuit jars,
Union Jack jackets, black hats and black ties,
Mourners wake each morning, tears in their eyes,
Meanwhile a pen breaks, hand covered in ink,
He hates it, hates it, thinks that it all stinks.
Out on London streets queues stretch five miles long,
On Radio Four they sing same old song,
Corgis, Britannia, her husband, her kids,
Meanwhile the country has gone on the skids.
Beethoven’s death march, over and over,
Uppity horses dreaming of clover,
At least she’s at peace, inside her oak box.
Me? I still think it’s a load of bollocks.

Harry Rogers in the Red Bedroom, 15th September 2022
