Palmerston North Pubs

Palmerston North pubs are like nothing else
that's where John Clarke came from
people think he was a Melbourne Boy
no, he was Manawatu, New Zealand, through and through

Palmerston North pubs are segregated
Maori and rugby, his and hers
there’s the lounge bar, there's the place where cover bands play Dire Straits and bore
if you’re lucky, Sam Hunt will visit and read some BS he’s written while pissed on
cask wine and homemade beer

if unlucky
the bouncers will throw you into the cold Palmy concrete
where you’ll cry all night long
wake up to the sound of council workers
walk back to your student flat
never look back

Red Wine, Cohen and Piano

red wine, Cohen, and piano
reaching back, back to you
alcohol and 300 plus albums
turntable and beers
dylan and even elton
whatever, MOR will do

dancing on nothing
fumes of cheap grog
part-time chef job
late night wasting away
partying in Palmy flat rooms

music muted
philosophy and science
drinking and forgetting the bland future
the failures to come

The Foul-Mouthed Chef

the foul-mouthed chef who cannot be fired
cannot be hired, elsewhere
stands there, in his kitchen, and swears
drinks beer, vodka, gin, anything available

cooks under the influence
a true artist
depressed, pure, uncompromised
completely over all the culinary bullshit

ignores the books, magazines, websites, social-media claptrap
cooks as he chooses
ignores the trends
drinks to forget
removed from the nightmare present

The Drunkard Crosses

the drunkard crosses
entire families wiped out on roads
white crosses

houso fuckwits SBS satirizes
fun, spoof, hilarious
drugs, booze, partying, injecting
get behind the wheel
the drunkard crosses
entire families wiped out on roads

black spots, white crosses
white, killer, trash...
