WHAT THE ANGELS SAY




WHAT THE ANGELS SAY


Here’s what the angels say. 
They look at me and say
He’s had a few scoops.
That’s what the angels say.

Will you look at him, they say,
with everything under padlocks,
and him drinking Burgundy
and playing his squeezebox.

And the state of the world
and the shortage of sanity  
and the dearth of angel dust!
And will ya look at him they say

heading off to Italy
in the middle of the Covid,
reciting into his mask,
thinking he's good as Ovid.
