A common man marvels at uncommon things. A wise man marvels at the commonplace. CONFUCIUS

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 ...
