.fifteen pence.

thought i was fed up of mince pies

& lost my appetite


though having the day off work today

fancied one from frozen

reduced at last to fifteen pence

as that time is well and truthfully




i like to place upside down to remove

the tin foil ready for recycling

then cut crossways into quarters

it looks like those tiny meat pies

goblins, from tins


i don’t eat those of course

with it being meat & vague

ingredients which would

come clear if i read the



i eat the little bits

with mine coffee


& think that the pastry reminds

me of the 1960’s when tarts were

very usual


without much flavour


i think most of it is none of my business

although i hear folk are getting very

heated about it all


Let's be friends
