JOHN COOPER CLARKE {and the other side of Manchester}

I never shared a house with Nico
But neither did I advertise Sugar Puffs
Or align myself with the Honey Monster

A gummy breakfast cereal aimed at getting
Children addicted to sugar. Chances are
Some of them will never recover. Now

Think of famine in parts of Africa
Compare it to obesity, diabetes

Eating disorders unique to western cultures

The usual argument is that one negates the other

Consider this when you see fat folk eating biscuits
Babies starving, hollow-eyed and desperate
Unable to be suckled by their mothers

The death of Nico in a cycling accident on Ibiza

Everything is random
If only she’d worn a helmet
None of this might have happened

Poetry would rhyme. I’d have enough for pizza
