dragging the days (as free as a frock)

dragging the days (as free as a frock) – Ruby Carruthers Mugshot, 1926 – 01/12/2022

not much
of a theft . . .

hardly worth
all the bother

but free
is free
until there’s a price

six months light labour
for a frock
worth
three pound

oh
how the long days
do drag on
