The Friday Poem: ‘Flying Fuck’, by James Brown

New verse by Wellington writer James Brown.

 

Flying Fuck

 

We spend too much time

doing things for people who don’t

give a flying fuck about us.

 

What is a flying fuck anyway?

Is that line earning its place?

It could probably be cut.

 

James Brown, 2017
