40 - Zip

melb
I dunno what’s worse
being beat 40 – zip
in the NRL* Grand Final
(and coppin’ it sweet) or
beatin’ th’ gums to pulp
on radio over an Artist
feller wantin’ t’ take
pictures of schoolkids
in th’ nude
some 15 months ago

all I know is –
Melbourne’s involved

seems unsublimated
wounded pride
excess of hot air
or illogic and unfettered
paedophilic imaginings 
is the consensus behaviour
down there
