Pancakes A Plenty
Last night rocked. There were more pancakes for the pecking than we could cope with. Fuckin’ hilarious. Me, Eliot, Mart and the boys doing the swoop thing. Had to watch the Hackney gang though – rough as fuck and they think us Hoxton posse are a bunch of poetry reading nancies.
Didn’t take pigeon cam in the end – didn’t want to get pancake on it. Quite good though coz Del – my Brixton homeboy pigeon pal who got me my pigeon cam, had to get one too – he’s kind of like that. He took this of me and Mart going for the same bit. Fucking funny. We pissed ourselves. Think Mart won…
Anyway, talking poetry which I realise I haven’t done for a while – just been too busy with other shit – was going through Poem Hunter this morning kinda half looking for one to include in my ‘Give Pigeons A Chance‘ petition pack for Ken and found one I which sounded the nuts called: ‘A Balade of Complaint’:
|A Balade of Complaint
| Compleyne ne koude, ne might myn herte never,
My peynes halve, ne what torment I have,
Though that I sholde in your presence ben ever,
Myn hertes lady, as wisly he me save
That Bountee made, and Beautee list to grave
In your persone, and bad hem bothe in-fere
Ever t’awayte, and ay be wher ye were.
As wisly he gye alle my joyes here
Beseching yow in my most humble wyse
I nearly had a fucking heart attack. Jesus Christ! What the fuck kind of language is that?? Does any twat speak it and how do they find shit on Poem Hunter using words like ‘trouthe’ and ‘hertes’ and ‘t’awayte’? Jesus. If anyone out there understands this shit – let me know in the comments. Just a yes or no will do.
Perhaps Geof Chaucer is some kind of Alien? Maybe he’s got a website? Maybe I could get in touch and ask him to explain himself coz noone else is gonna fucking understand his shit. I’ll do some sniffing this avo.
In the meantimee here’s a great pic which is gonna go in my Ken pack for sure – taken by Del on the way back this morning…
It’s me having a shit in front of one of Ken’s ‘Do Not Feed the Pigeons‘ boards on Trafalgar Square. Fuckin’ hilarious. Deffo gonna send it to him – may frame it poster size although this is probably quite hard to sort for a pigeon… Maybe Ali can help…?
