Tree Surgeon (as Philip Larkin might have written it)

Forehead throbbing from a skinful of rum,
"Two thirds off of Mrs Jenkins' purple plum?"
Chippolata fingers prepare the morning spliff,
"Let's get going. Bish, bash, bosh. Shouldn't be too diff"

On with knackered harness; pull out frayed rope
from under tangled tree care kit (mangled beyond hope).
"I'll just knock the tops out, you can drag the brash.
Two hours work: 300 quid. Or 290 for cash."
