The old river is shit-brown
Silted up with guilty memories
Choked like a sclerotic vein
From all the lard of empire
Over on the other bank
They are still making Babel-towers above
The trough of the City
Austerity applies elsewhere-
Where people live
Where the flow
Veins don’t get sclerotic, arteries do. Veins get thrombosed…
But there is always artistic license 🙂
oops- better do a wee revision!
actually- just been playing, artery will not do- does not scan! Sorry doc, we will have to break the laws of medical science!
