Share of the Pie

Submitted by Janine on 06 December 2022 at 14:41

Long long time ago, I can still remember
How winter snow would make me smile
And I knew when I had my chance
We’d come inside to warm and dance
And maybe we'd be happy for a while

But February made me shiver
With every bill that they delivered
Bad news on the mat
How the feck can I pay that?

Spoaken Word Lewes

Janine hosts December's Spoaken Word Lewes.

Our guest poet is AP Staunton, who is a regular contributor to Spoaken Word Lewes' open mic. Asked to provide a description of himself, he sent this rhyme:

He's just an ordinary working class bloke,

Who likes a laugh and a joke,

Often in trouble,

Burst many a bubble,

So come hear him at the Royal Oak.
