“Fudge By Numbers”

I was told it would be easy
By the man in the third cubicle from the left near the door marked EXIT.
“Just like 1-2-3,” he said
As though a small dog were chewing on his ankle.

But I found, not to my complete surprise, that, in fact it was
More like X-Y-Z.
“Bloody typical,” I shouted at the man who was washing behind the potted plants.
But then, isn’t everything?

N.B. You can hear “Fudge By Numbers” read by poetry legend Roger McGough OBE by clicking on the poem in the POETRY AUDIO box at the top right of this page.
