Nursery

Twinkle, twinkle little star.
better watch out where you are

The Black Hole’s coming just for you.
If you’re not careful, you’ll go through.

Twinkle, twinkle little star.
Better tone up who you are.

Lidl’s* VS Asda/Walmart

Even though Asda's is incorrect
politically, my Nigerian British friend
refuses to shop at the market
one block away from her house.
Too many nebulous almost Europeans
up in the joint.

(Mostly from that one nation which diss’d Bush
before Shock & Awe. Kept him out
of their borderland on the hope the E.U.
would let them pretend to be White

in the World economy. ) These same refugees
shove their way to the till.
Acting as if she isn't there. Unlike fat,
if you don't exercise
your White privilege it disappears.

Deanne says she’s wondered
if she becomes invisible,
little, a vague hint of a Black hole.
The way these brownish folks pretend
their place in line is always ahead of her.

The way she tries not to suck them in.

pat a cake, pat a cake
butcher’s man.

kill the white drake
as fast as you can.

pluck him,
and clean him,

and disembowel he.
so I can cook up

a lidl freedom.


* pronounced Little’s
