Number Crunching

Just do the maths, they say,
as if you were failing to face up to harsh realities.

Just do the maths –
as if it was obvious to anybody with a brain.

Just do the maths – they say, these young men
in their smart suits with their dry eyes

as if you hadn’t thought things through
as if you didn’t know

that nothing adds up
when you’re counting down.

  1. Love it!
    you’re amazing
    I’m now almost 95
    painting like mad
    Still reasonably robust
    Exhibiting next year
    Showing in Cornwall and living there
    I remember the ambulance
    Action Space is still alive in me in performance
    All the very best in your van
    ken
