Sit perfectly still and be kissed
By the warmth of on-line screen
This Good News, the New Year brings.
Bargains by the dozen,
A crowd of mad gunmen
Stormed a prosperous precinct.
Turning a well-known fast food outlet
Into a scene from ‘Blood and Ketchup’.
A prosperous year then to all fanatics
And everyone else in any kind of racket.
Such as our friends in government.
There are lots of cameras around
With which to film us.
It must surely make them smile
To see all those anxious feet
Chasing deals down Oxford Street.
