To Have and to Have Not

by grimbeau

Downstairs floor suck underway
With a hey-nonny-nonny
and a ha-bloody-hee
Gonna meet a quaker
with a banjo on my knee
killing time the old way
watch a river flow
under a complacent sun
Florrie sprayed the kitchen garden
a shiny black car drove off

Art of eyebrows sheds fresh light
Professor Marmite makes a stir
courts controversy
divides opinion
promotes indifference
chairs sitting on the fence
Splinters…sat no more
Denis Diderot takes a powder
Drowns his woes in seafood chowder
Chagrin’s cat hisses delight
Sibilant as steam in a fissure
A team player left out for scowling
Slicing blood oranges for half time
spitting in fresh face masks
