Make is so Captain Picardigan

Written 2016, it’s a bit odd. I read it once at a poetry night in London. Can you name all the movies etc quoted?!

I like smoke and lightning

The fun, fan, furn of the Autobahn

But I thought the cathedral was on the other side of the square

And you may ask yourself – Well… How did I get here?

Broadsword calling Danny Boy

We’re gonna be cool, like the Fonz

See, there’s three kinds of people: dicks, pussies, and assholes.

I had known Betty for a week. We screwed every night. The forecast was for storms.

Rebellion is the only thing that keeps you alive!

My only plan is, I have no plan.

I think you ought to know, I’m feeling very depressed.

July had been blown out like a candle.

Poetry is untranslatable, like the whole art.

We’re going to need a bigger boat.

Jan was an excellent fuck. She had a tight pussy. And she took it like it was a knife that was killing her.

Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.

My God it’s full of stars!

Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead.

Back in the USSR

Open the pod bay door Hal

Acting funny but I don’t know why.

Let’s look for the purple banana, ‘til they put us in a truss

She had so many devices. Everything that money could buy

I am the Nightrider. I’m a fuel injected suicide machine. I am the rocker, I am the roller, I am the out-of-controller!

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Spice extends life

This isn’t reality. This — is fantasy.

Mama just killed a man

Read ‘em and weep, the dead man’s hand again

Any of you fucking pricks move, and I’ll execute every motherfucking last one of ya!
