Tale of Three Cities

Mark Slaughter

New York blasted London blasted 

Singapore - 

Ripped off each other's metaphoric balls, 

Crumbling walls.


Priapic city monoliths - 

Blue-sky scraping bastards -

Shout about their height (but really length) .


V8 arseholes didn't care -

Pumping shit into the air, 

So long as they were always there to

Fart aloud a smoggy cloud, 

Laughing at the weak asthmatic, 

Humoured that it seems traumatic.


Watch the greedy cities oozing

Chair-bound fat committees, though they

Look a bunch of titties as they

Waffle on about the pound.


Ever thought to look around and see

That they were dead?
