Fizzy Wisdom

For hours I lolled in Samadhi

Then gave that up for fags and tea.

Had baths then brunch by ten past three

Then dined on wine-soaked crisps and brie.

 

I ‘went’ to work thirteen days late

Thought long and hard about my fate

Said the PC threw me out

(It wasn’t coz I laid about).

 

They didn’t want to know my woes

So off I pottered to Tesco’s

With newly written clean CV

Which only stated

‘PhD’.

 

That didn’t work

So back I came

In undeployed

Unfocused shame.

 

So then I learnt to play the bass

(Coz that might save the human race)

But got a writ from thirty-four

Who sued (they couldn’t take much more).
