Thai curry and Aberdeen angus Beef Burgers

Twas 1968 that Peter  Green composed

a gem

inspired by the “Albatross”

wanting to soar with them

across the many oceans

inspired he was to see

their truly wondrous temperament

and vast ability


it conjured up a melody that

became a number one

in 1969 and since

what they have really done

the supermarket  moguls

borrowed  the melody

and  hung on Peter’s  genius

and his  feeling of flying  free


the sadness is that

The albatross

are significantly under threat

from plastics in the ocean

and on beaches

we have let

too many marketeers create

masses of this waste

being eaten by these wondrous  birds

Their internal organs graced


seriously being put at risk

And M&S might  know

the music chosen to accompany

Their Aberdeen Angus Beef Burgers  show

and previously Thai curry

is the great bird flying free?

or dying on some island

its poor  gut tragically


full of jettisoned plastic waste

the great bird   alas

Doomed  for our transgression

which comes across as crass

it saddens  me the  poet

to point out and  confess

and highlight the poor Albatross

who is now in some distress.


Peter Green and Fleetwood Mac

took on the mantle, they

Felt the state of wonderment

the enchantment  and the way

music mirrored  freedom

Soaring night and day

As to slaughtering Highland Cattle

really there is no way

And  to sell that poor admission

with a musical array.

M&S its saddening

the onset of death’s we see

from plastic waste

and slaughterhouses

and combined servility.
