In Memoriam Pete
It’s true he could be mean
but he was funny and charismatic.
I liked Pete.
And so I set off to his memorial service
Arriving at Clapham Junction station
I see a sign
with those 2 dismal words,
‘Bus Replacement to Burgess Hill.’
That’s 30 fucking miles away!
and I conclude…
I liked Pete
but I didn’t like him enough
to take the bus replacement to Burgess Hill.
I remember just how mean he was
I turn round and head back home
where I catch the last 10 minutes
of the Antiques Road Show.
