off

can’t do much, not much to do.
go down to the river. noy much to do. not much on: nothing. it’s a bank holiday.
they said this in an email, said sponge, i got recently. things people say, i don’t believe a word for a minute.
that’s it, don’t go down to the river, the banks are off.

still off the move

bottom line is, said sponge, we’re still stuck here at this corner.
due to the motion ban, said breadroll.
and the ban on movements, said block of wood.
that as well, said sponge.
would you like another sheep, the man said, or at least a ewe stand to put it on?
