Slime in the back lanes
Greasy bacon haired
worm rotted popularity on suburban to downtown buses
toothless and reeking of body odour
scabbed hands red from the opedial clasp of sherry bottles
decorated by black claws
that must not touch
Fleeing refugees from a napalmed society?
victims of hedonistic failure?
All depends on the current need for the heroes of misery
and funds of the welfare state
