When you were full you could wander past stalls selling
ruff presses, flintlocks and baby supplies,
gimlets, food processors, eiderdowns, hat-pins,
bridal wear, bunting, rough diamonds and hay.
(Also for those of a different persuasion were
codpieces, dildos and merkins for sale)
There were wise women, soothsayers, tea-leaf consultants
crystal ball gazers, diviners and sybils,
hauruspices, pythons, palmists, predictors
augurs and oracles, forecasters, psychics...
What does the future hold?
