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
That didn’t work
So back I came
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).
