Tattered and torn,
Smidged and smeared like a bruise.
Unwanted, unheeded, unvalued, unneeded.
Yesterday's news.

Today is a write-off.
Tomorrow who knows?
- wrapping chips if you're lucky.
See where the wind blows.

A heightened awareness
that the waste bins await.
Please not yet!
Surely there's more than yesterday's date?

So come gales and take me
up high and away.
Release the faint hope
of a new yesterday.

Try hard to remember
it's better to have been
yesterday's news
than unheard and unseen.

Do you believe in the phoenix?
It seems so far away.
The wind blows.  The press rolls.
Fare thee well, yesterday.
Fare thee well, yesterday.
