What is this life if, full of care,
We have no notes or coins to spare?
No time to stand in B and queue
(As if we'd better things to do!):
No time to see, when shops we pass,
Where markets "educate" the mass:
No time to see, in neon light,
Stores full of dross and tat and shite:
No time to turn at Xmart's glance
And watch her pornographic dance:
No time to wait till her mouth can
Open the purse of any man?
A poor life this, if full of care,
We have no time for better ware.
With apologies to WH DAVIES ...
