Christmas Pension


bless the mixture
before it's set

appeal falters
insurance hiked
demands become automatic
pay rises again

here endeth
the financial year

80 billion buys
four dormouse boxes
numbered in series
fifty trains a volunteer

the price of everything
surveys the crater


From Words of the Weak:                         

Gun Detox
