Hospitality

Mid-July, with public houses now reopened

We chose to ignore the government behest

That we risk our health and that of those we love

In the company of strangers for the sake of the economy

And instead took our bottles and cigarettes

Bought from the corner shop for economy’s sake

To the kitchen table

Where we privately drank and smoked ourselves sick
