The Agents

Are they estate agents
Or agents on your estate?
Commercial interests include
Surveying your wife’s death
Valuing hate, valuing war
Men with paper knocking on your door
From Wathen Road come the MBs
Fixing prices, breaking lives
Organised crime with tommy guns
Crooked cops with blinkers on
Residential drive-by,
Commercial front,
Industrial machines
Spelling out your end.
Come on now,
Show me to your house.
If you’re lucky
You’ll get a great price.


So, what do you think?
