Nick Frost
I've not eaten today
I decided that nothing would taste nice
Everything in the cupboard looked fine
But I just wasn't interested
I couldn't see anything
Nothing caught my eye
And I have a wandering eye
Not unlike the rest of me
I'm a wanderer through and through
I wandered up to the post office
I wandered up to the corner shop
I managed to get some food
I managed to get some milk
I put it in the fridge
And watched it go sour
I left it there so long
I could no longer pour it
It was thicker than my neck
It was thicker than a plank of wood
It was thicker than a red house brick
It was thicker than another brick in the Berlin wall
I felt like a brick
I could be used to build a wall
Probably a wall of ignorance
Or an Iron Curtain
I always thought I was well read
I read a lot of stuff
Most of it was boring
In one eye out the other
I read newspapers
I read comics
I read magazines
I read "Harry Potter"
I read "Lord of the Rings"
I read "Horrible Histories"
I read something by Virginia Woolf
And I saw a movie about her once
I wouldn't watch it again
It was shit
I watched Paul
I don't like films about Beatles
I don't like films
I prefer the television
I think that's all I need
I eat that stuff up
I'll eat it all day long
Until I'm full of it.
