Dr Fizz

dr. fizz has been
in the cellar all day
and now the bubbles
work as they should

dr. bang has been
exploding things
and now he has
perfected harm

dr. suppose has been
wishing away his life
and now he has
to face what is

dr. fizz
walks the length
of his home brewed cell

dr. bang
wants to end it all
just needs one excuse

dr. suppose
simply hopes
it will never happen

it will never happen

it will never happen

….

CLOWN CLIMBED TO THE TOP
OF A TWENT-TWO STOREY BUILDING
TO DRINK HIS BOTTLE OF BLEACH

clown
only asked for laughter
but they painted him
as someone else

only asked to tumble
but they pushed him over
flat on his face

only asked if he could smile
but now he grimaces
in greasepaint

only asked for love
but they only want him
to be amused

clown
only asked only asked
but now he
never questions
