Ode to Biggie Juice

entry picture

He was going to be good … but the day was full of strife

Leave on time, home for five, a cheery “Hi Honey” for the wife


He’s planned his route to the station, avoiding all temptation

To slip in a bar, for a quiet one and some idle conversation


As he does from time to time to take the edge off the day

To chill it out, wind it down and give the brain a holiday


From the air conditioned cool into the city’s searing air

He sets off to the station, but just over half way there


He looks up at the platinum ball, that hangs in a clear blue sky

And in a flash, he dehydrates, throat parched, lips cracked and dry


His vision blurs, time slows, and he stands blinking in the street

As a mirage unfolds before him, mellifluous and sweet


A street artist just like Biggie Small rapping “Juicy” as he busks

He becomes lost in the moment, his resolve crumbling into dust


He heads into the station bar, the barman gives a knowing wink

And pulls a pint of Biggie Juice without asking what he drinks
