NaPoWriMo Day 22

Dead Monday

Seven on a Manchester Monday morning

Half of the bodies in the streets are gurning

All of the vehicles service or taxi

The roads are wide and the pavements free

All of the country taking a break

All but the mugs on double pay

Mugs like me on the 143

Or the 41 or whichever came along after waiting ten

Busiest bus route but that was then 

How could your chin protract any further?

How much more could your makeup be smeared?

How could you hold such a messed up face and by me you become so revered?
