• I'd Better Not--

    A man leaned over to a man in a pub
    And said in a voice
    ‘I used to be thirty seven but now I’m fifty one’.
    And that’s how the years go.
    In handfuls.
    Like somebody is almost at the end of a bag of crisps
    And they tip the bag up
    And it’s as though they’re drinking crisps.
    That’s how the years go.”
