The Last Supper

The Last Supper I bring you an invitation
Oh no, she says not an invitation
Yes
We are all so afraid
Yes
An invitation to hang up
The suffocating overcoat of communication
Hang it up
And those with biros write upon your wrists
The play contains no information
Aren't you tired of journalists?
Oh, aren't you tired of journalists?
No one will hold your hand tonight
Nor oil you with humour
As the swimmer is greased to pass through
Water quicker
No
When the poem became easy it also became poor
When art became mechanised it also became an addiction
I lecture!
Oh, I lecture you!
Forgive!
Forgive!
