National Espresso
Rain Claw

I take myself off to the corner shop

For some chewy gum and the news.

I say hello to the shopkeeper

And I listen to his views.


City got beaten by United

Somebody else was in a fight.

Such and such was burgled

Next door was burned down last night.


And you never see the coppers

Unless they come in for a Mars.

Even then its just in and out

And then they jump back in their cars.


Yeah, right, so I say goodbye

And I wish him a good day.

I wander back on to the rainy street

And I head for the café.


Where its more of the same

But with a choccy topping.

Bus station, roundabouts

Homeless people, shopping.
