“it fucking gets you fucking down”


Today is, I think, National Poetry Day – and I do like a bit of poetry.

Having heard him in fine form on Danny Baker’s show recently John Cooper Clarke seems to be a good start today with here a prescient, (for me), extract from one of his better known, (thanks to Mr Soprano et al), poems. Namely Evidently Chickentown.

the fucking pies are fucking old
the fucking chips are fucking cold
the fucking beer is fucking flat
the fucking flats have fucking rats
the fucking clocks are fucking wrong
the fucking days are fucking long
it fucking gets you fucking down
evidently chicken town

If I’m feeling a little more upbeat later I might post something a little more positive eh ?
