REFRIED PUNK

An exclusive poem written for The List

PUNK ROCK REVIVAL

By John Cooper Clarke

the rip-off riff's authentic ring
a singer who can't really sing
can only mean one fucking thing
punk rock revival

affect the look of a man obsessed
predisposed to the predistressed
now you know you're properly dressed
punk rock revival

wear your hair the wrong way round
spike it up in a vaseline crown
button up your button down
punk rock revival

PVC and nylon fur
and D-rings are de rigeur
the way we are is the way we were
punk rock revival
