Election Special, The Fisheries

We followed the dunnocks into a bush of johnnies
and they came out the other side as sausages.
Your choice of language is just choice she said
but it's sweet the way it's so skanking. Over
the top of Disgruntlement Hill the fish came under
a 48 hour refund guarantee - there was no tropical /
cold-water distinction, the choice was between fully-
& break-off. We bought our own tanks & filled them
with doors, locks & cabinets, that way we could
open them to read the headlines swimming in serifs across
the other side, coalescing around the televised Town Hall
debate : a 70% module assessment aided with nights
under the air-con. That familiar hum, like a satnav in a hearse.
