Jason on Tanka (4 hours ago)
round every corner's a food bank
but what about people like me?
my table creaks with provisions,
I'm never short of salmon for tea
its a love bank my heart needs
somewhere to nourish my soul,
fill my breast with fondant fancies
its been far too long on the dole
I dream of hot charitable staff
eager women dressed to kill,
piling my basket with promise

Job than you! Move brown boxes from A to B in a futile
Effort for a bit of pocket money, no hard cash here.
Empty promises and sugar-coate...

Once-upon-a-time, a barman worshipped the Sun.
Worked nights so didn’t see much of it
but in his head he’d got stories of
the Fire God supreme,
vanquishing monsters who'd eat out your dreams.

giant wings of flame
and the handsomest nose in the galaxy.
