She
sorts out her hair at the washroom of Preston services Dries
her hands under a notice that says "have you seen this child "?And
she nurses her tea for one hour in the cafeteria Watching
the truck drivers blind their fried eggs with the cutlery And

english murder it's all over her face Just
waiting until the right time the wrong lay-by There'll
be a photograph With
a bad 1970's fringe and a look of uncertainty Years
later you'll know the name but not where you know it from And

they've emptied the terraced row with compulsory purchases Reasoning
that they'd make more from the ground with the people gone And
so he shuffles the half a mile to the nearest post office When
lads push into the queue he pretends he's not noticed them And

english murder it's all over his face A
low enough cold snap a high enough gas bill You'll
skim the epitaphs And
you'll possibly notice his name like somebody's you knew from school There'll
be an off the peg verse where sad has been rhymed with dad And

the houses in which they've invested their city bonuses Have
increased the property prices and therefore the homelessness The
scabby grey anti climb paint and withdrawn amenities In
case socialising promotes anti social behaviour And

english murder it's all over the place The
bunches of flowers in pedestrian precincts Your
average sociopath at least kills With
a hammer or brick not with greed and incompetence And
after two or three years they'll express remorse
