Eaten that soup

for three days.

Am I in austerity then?

That damned place

the headlines shout about.

Hell’d be warmer mind.


Nice soup though,

plenty ‘uv veg.

I get me five a day.

Keeps me warm too.

“Every little ‘elps.”


Cold today.

Soup’s nearly gone.

Best build meself up

to brave the outside

in more layers

than a blinkin’ onion –

and some near as thin.


Them potatoes were heavy.

S’like a blinkin’ igloo in here!

Best treat meself

and light the fire.


I’m outta matches.
