Porky The Poet – Commute

Helen jogs to work
Step by step and
Beat by beat
Helen jogs to work
Slab by slab and
Street by street
Helen jogs to work
Day by day and
Week by week
Helen jogs to work

Helen jogs to work
Because apparently
She likes the gamey tang of diesel
And pedestrian farts

Helen jogs to work
Because apparently
It gives her that edge
Of body odour and nipple rash

Helen jogs to work
Because apparently
Fat people make her sick
Physically sick

Helen jogs to work
Because apparently
She likes chatting about trainers
During her thirty minute lunch meetings

Helen jogs to work
Because apparently
Her boss jogs to work
And he’s a really good bloke

Helen jogs to work
Because last night
She ate three Ginsters
And drank half a bottle of mint baileys

Helen jogs to work
Because apparently
Those trains and tubes and buses
Are full of,
You know,
People

Helen jogs to work
Because apparently
Sitting at home binge watching Game of Thrones
And wanking over Tyrion Lannister
Is poor time management

Helen jogs to work
Because apparently
She wants to feel more smug
Than she does by having a job during a recession

Helen jogs to work
Because apparently
The constant threat of unemployment
Doesn’t make her heart beat fast enough

Helen jogs to work
Step by step and
Beat by beat
Helen jogs to work
Slab by slab and
Street by street
Helen jogs to work
Day by day and
Week by week
Helen jogs to work
