memoirs, art and fragments by Thomas Milner

So the neuro-zone is going down the tubes.

So our politicos are a dangerous combination

Of corruption and incompetence and

Every day is a good day to bury bad news

So our country is just one long beach

Where we become drowsy

With too much sun

So we grab any excuse to down tools

And close the factory to celebrate

A football fest

Innumerable saint’s days

Municipal holidays

Political holidays

Traditional holidays

Long weekends

Mini-breaks …


But no, on second thoughts,

Better let sleeping dogs lie

And besides, it’s the weekend.
