At 6 o’clock he met the shore

Like some child-hood friend who’d been exposed to civil war

Who didn’t know him anymore

three’s a crowd but four’s a bore.

Back a few more blocks there was a kid

a carbon copycat with whiskers on his bib

sat unaware to what he did

teach a toddler how to live..

/We are so unaligned/

And with the tide came Tennents tins,

a wake of heartburn and the trunk he’s buried in.

He wrote a note without a pen

to teach the toddler how to swim

/You are so uninspired/

I met an ego with the straightest smile
who bribed his kids to keep them in line

he said, “Your friend’s a sign of the times,
you people breed like high rise fires”

but where’s the industry of youth 
when all the factories work for you 
and single mums are left to cook

with saline seeping from the roof?

we’re just that pesky snaggle-tooth

yellow and chipped from penny chews

and what we do, we don’t for you
Cause all we wanted was the truth.
