For John P x
When we were younger we owned everything.
We could stop soho traffic with lies, cross casually across continental borders without supplies.
We would question Policemen at random on Frith Street playing Trivial Pursuit with two cards.
Meet tramps and take them to Scotland without a map a clue or a route.
With the windows open..
When we were properly married with wives, we would easily squeeze a week out of an early doors pint.
When I was distraught, John came and found me in The Dog and Duck.
Because he cared and knew I was down on my luck.
We got in his car and went to the sea, and I threw up in a Southend bin.
I did a lot, take the egg from his Scotch, and break his company car, and keys as we payed each other in tulips and fried egg sandwiches.
When we get old we’ll laugh so much for years about one minute we shared with each other at some point.
Best friends are what we did, best friends are what we do.
