as the ‘rona drones


as the ‘rona drones ( senord anor’ eht sa )


over clover’s leas

plods a yokel cabbage


songs within his deep green

anorak pockets


under onion skies

pickled like the piffle


of the brainstream snooze

& the beige of the age


birdsong glistens still

in the pantaloons of winter


welkins bloom to blue

lilac alder catkins


kingfisher swishes

by the blanks of the gibber


colours sound around

shite night musing’s


cows beyond the town

cattle beyond cattle


sheep upon these hills

watch the village witter


as the ‘rona drones

so the muzzled skip


dancing with the ants

in this phantom pantomime
