.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

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
