stu’s closed up the great big hole
in the kitchen
coulda let in
from anywhere
any kinda vermin
so ya gotta keep it clean
he says & i try
but today he’s back
with slavik
to set things straight
detect the crap
hidden in the pipes
that no one ever even noticed
not till he arrived
we have a problem
slavi laughs
but stu dont think it’s very funny
all that crap all around
all that flax on the path
a giant rat flying fish
jewish he reckons
& god knows what else
runnin cryptic
blocking pipes
as old as the hills
havin places
he gotta be
besides here
standing in my shit
