The other night I was hanging out of my window.
I was waiting on my washing machine to stop.
I was passing the time watching a gang of idiots fight each other on the street.
My door buzzer interrupted the entertainment.
“I need to turn your water off for half an hour”.
Me: “Do you? And who might you be?”
I went out to find out what was going on.
There was a toilet outside my front door.
That explains that then.
Got up the next day and decided to take a stroll about town.
Y’know that way where you just fancy a bit of a wander?
A Sunday morning stroll.
First thing I saw was this:
An old man on a motorised scooter on the road.
Then at snails pace,
He jumps the red light.
The crazy fool.
I followed him for a bit then got bored and took a detour.
I walked some backstreets into Strathclyde University’s Campus.
Lotta forgettable buildings full of hungover students.
Forgettable buildings except this one:
More people should stick animals on their houses really…
So that was me wandering around some more…
Then I found this:
A big massive 12 foot tall safety pin with a bird on top of it.
It’s an art sculpture.
There was a plaque saying so.
I would like it more if there was no plaque.
Because then more people would react the same way I did.
“Is that a….Big twelve foot high safety pin with a bird on top of it?”
“The Hell is that doing there?”
Glasgow’s a funny place at the Weekends.
