Halford's Car Park (Shooting Stars)

Lines written in the garden at the end of a hot day involving a trip to a retail park. East Kent, 18 May 2014.

Was it my Arts degree
And laboured First
My unquenched thirst
For paintings and poetry
That so disqualifies me
And sets me apart
From those who hanker to be
In Halford’s auto spares car park.

Yet oh, to swagger, and chew the fat
With a couple of swells
And mini-skirted girls
How I’d like that.
To talk about a turbo
And tinker with cars
To know as much as they know
And keep on counting shooting stars.
