BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS

To start the day like a champion

You should start the day with a shag,

A hand-lowered shite of 6lb weight,

A can of Long Life and a fag.

◄ THE LONGEST DAY

THE BALLAD AND SALUTARY TALE OF WAYNE, WAYNETTA AND CHARLENE ►

Feels like the "pay-off" to a performance on stage. If this had
come from one of those "Beat" poets back in the day, it would've
been eulogised fervently. 😎

One does one’s best, Kevin, to push back the boundaries of high brow literature.
And thanks for the Like, Pete.

Nice one John.
We need more class like this on this site, and some of the younger members of the site could learn a lot if they read more of your fantastic musings.
I must say though, being a nonsmoker I don't know about starting the day with a fag.

In truth, Stephen, I only ever mastered the last three.

Quite agree, John. This could put you in line for the Costa prize (or Caffe Nero), if there is any justice. I rarely got past the first step, mind you.

Thankyou, Kevin. There should be more of this experimental poetry on this site.
And thanks for the Likes, Frederick, Stephen and Branwell.
