Come Good Friday
Will you find a better kind of joy
Than selling
Postcards of the local china shop
To strangers
Wearing golfing shoes and table cloths?
It doesn't
Seem to satisfy you,
Not alot.

Good Friday.
Only chance to live a little while
In sunshine
Out there in the plazas in the smiles
Of strangers
Buying their ice creams from someone else
And feeding
Swans and waiting for the theatre bells.

Good Friday.
This town has the same as everywhere.
There's just more
Tea towels with the hand-me item squares.
It should be
Happiness to wander down a lane.
But all of the
Records in the shops have stayed the same.

Come Monday
Radio will play the total list:
The best of
The century with too much soul to give.
Can this be
The best we really have to do all day?
To wait for
Everybody's stupid turn to say:

Good Friday
Might've got some pleasure on a race.
Not betting,
Just scanning every unique ernest face.
Decrying
Sabotage and all the threats it brings.
Two Linkers
In the polo country in the spring.

Oh-oh, oh-oh.

    General CommentI wasn't sure about the lines starting:

    "Tea towels..."

    and

    "Just scanning..."

    Suggested corrections welcome.
