flash by Ross Leese

when you think about it
there’s probably not a lot
of patience knocking about.

it didn’t take too long
for monkey to grow into
man

didn’t take long at all
for horse-carts to fashion
into cars

didn’t take too long for anti-
semitism to transform
into holocaust

didn’t take too long for black
and white to blossom
into colour

didn’t take long for the
twentieth century to
explode into the
twenty first

didn’t take long for christ
to be forgotten and the
next false deity to
be ushered
in

didn’t take too long for
humanitys’ shit to hit
the fan

as they sat around waiting
for the next putrid
talent show to
rear its ugly
head

and make them
millions.
