In the week that the complete Beatles Anthology was released with all drug references expunged ...

Scenes from Pop without Drugs

Ten hours and boxed

A hundred quid

Anthology, the Beatles vid.

Out recently on EMI

The censored sleevenotes barely dry

And free of druggy reference

A recent market preference

For sterilising history

And taking out the mystery,

No acid house and no hip-hop,

These are scenes from drug-free pop:

Picture yourself on a train in a station

With ordinary porters in Railtrack ties

Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile

A girl with the Radio Times.

Lucy by the fire with ironing

Socks and Rugs and Washing Bowls

Waiting for My Flan

Teas are good. Teas are good

Cuppa teas are good...
