No Worries


Please – they’re colloquial sayings,
confusing yes, but more or less all
street expressions dressed in local
clothes; lingo to expose an upbeat
fluency for some to add in rhyme,
an idiom to die for – which we do,
slow-baked at least with the likes
of rustic ‘crikey’s’ graceful taste

What would sway you to our way?
It’s not an affectation when you say
and mean each word since sanity’s
explained in ‘but’ at sentence end –
& yet again this penchant’s mere
proclivity to double speak in debt
