Don’t waste your time like some country bumpkin-
cutting and slicing a face into an overpriced pumpkin.
Don’t give in to such a capitalist witchcraft trick!
Treat yourself instead to a much missed guitar lick
and enjoy a sedate and leisurely record trawl,
looking through Mel’s vinyl canon just having a ball:
ROCK OPERA Tommy!
that song by the Fall?
For a few pounds he can add to your memories
and even enhance those oh, so absent-minded reveries...
oh...oh...7 inch vinyl, as we know, can help create a bond:
“Hanging on the Telephone” - by a certain bottle blonde?
And also remind you of one, who entertained in the daftest of ways,
in those far off but far from forgotten days...
