Under the glare of a Tesco sign
The triumvirate sits and waits,
Each in their own way observing failures
That can be excused but not explained.
At first it was a lie that became a promise,
Then a truth which was in turn a threat
Like something meant to be whispered
But said out loud instead.
What each one lacks is made up for
By the faculties of the other two,
But their solitary virtues are just
Distractions from instinctive vice.
Just as a deed without a thought
Is defined by the other’s absence,
They linger by the cash machines
Like shadows cast without light.
