Oh dear, I've been a bad, bad blogger. September (and India) seems like such a long long time ago. I wish I could say I've been busy but like so many of us semi-unemployed I've been scrabbling together pennies from a bit of writing here and there, a range of bizarre temping "opportunities" and constructing as many ill-tempered complaint letters as humanly possible in the hope some will amount to physical goods. A pair of boots, £54 worth of rail vouchers and a bag of salt and vinegar crisps later, I'm convinced all the OAP spleen-venting was worth it, however a guaranteed income would be pretty nice.

Anyway, in an attempt to get back on the straight and narrow here's some doggerel that I contributed to feature in Venue earlier in the year. Written when the credit crunch was a bemusing topic of pub conversation rather than an ill that spelt 1.8m employed, please forgive the playful tone.
