So farewell then
Statue of a slave in Potters Fields,
You did your job
Reminding a million tourists
That I am guilty
Of something or other
250 years ago
And owe somebody something or other.
Thanks Southwark Council
For taking my money
To pay for Black History Month on now
And all the other pc cobblers.
I might have spent it on whisky and women,
You knew better
How to spread my dosh around.
There's a few quid left tho, so
Shall it be whisky or women?
'Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker.'
I think I need a drink.
