Pleasure Island
Colin Baker




What is this life if, full of shite,
We have no time to whinge and gripe?

No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And scream, 'my boss is such a cow!' :

No time to sigh when summer comes,
'What bugger's gone and nicked the sun?' :

No time to whinge as cold weeks pass,
'The price of gas, my balls are brass!' :

No time to turn when on a train
To say, 'you kick my seat again!' :

No time to cry 'junk mail's a farce!',
- YOU'VE WON A CAR! - 'Yeah right, my arse!' :

A poor life this if, full of shite,
We have no time to whinge and gripe.




Colin Baker January 2009 (somewhere in Britain)
