When the inimitable Mr. Pen and my bad self were walking through Shoreditch,
in passing a bum,
who was in turn 
passed out in a corner,
Mr. Pen quipped: 

“Let’s steal his shoes” 

To which I replied:

“Maybe we should check whether he’s dead first” 

It wasn’t until a good hour later that we realized
that what we had just made
was not a funny

Then we went out and spent the annual budget
of a small African nation on food. 

“Quip” was a collaboration between myself and Mr. Pen circa 2006.
