Tiananmen Square

Tiananmen square
just leaving
a pair of synchronised soldiers
in high camp paraded
super quick right past us
I think they were wearing
actual makeup
John said “not like
in the British army”
I said “by the left
MINCE!”
and we wiggled our
bums and flounced
right under the nose
of a very cross looking
bulldog of a guard
I think I actually injured
some intercostal muscles
we laughed so hard
Ah John
zen master clowning
that’s what I salute

Tiananmen Square
