Clare Dollard – Outside the G.P.O. – Lower Cecil Street

G. P. O.

.

Greatly Pissed Off queueing

Seeking service- express.

The parcel is not for you,

And there’s no forwarding address.

.

Greeted Politely On entry.

Your query, dealt with – quick.

‘It’s a self adhesive stamp,’ says the clerk

As your tongue protrudes, to lick.

.

Greying Pensioners Orbit

Around tassled green ropes as they wait

For the meagre sum they receive

From the powers that be in our state.

.

Gratitude Pours Out from the few

 that won on the Lotto.

Their supplications finally answered

After hours of prayer at that Grotto.

.

Generations Posted Onwards

By boat or perhaps air mail.

The kids of the Noughties believe

All deliveries are made by a snail.

.

– Clare Dollard
