the stuff of sunday afternoon

the stuff of sunday afternoon ( noonretfa yadnus fo ffuts eht )

sweep the backyard
humming kumbaya

with a wooden brush
or a broom shaped branch

in the potting shed
tinker with your death ray

suck a murray mint
eat a sweet satsuma

hide from curtain twitchers
twisted like their knickers

win another stare-off
with a gawpy garden gnome

pause for a coffee
a sneezy & a burp

read the paper’s headlines
chuckle at the doom porn

laughing as the normalzzz
bask in mask psychosis

them of s & m’s whip
true ghoul fodder

draw a snoring stickman
scribble in a notepad

plod beside the river
under scrumpled sheets of mizzle
