No matter how shit your day has been

No matter how low the world wants to make you

No matter if the money came from the back of the sofa

No matter if no one respects you

No Matter if you haven’t been touched in a Sex way for a while

No matter if your ideas go unheard

(Or even unspoken because you’re shy)

Fantastic Melly’s Chicken is a church that welcomes all, salves all, in its battery delicious opiate salty wings.

Its cross, the fluorescent perky cock’s face:

You see it, you know you’re welcome and will find solace.

You won’t be judged – you will be redeemed by the Holy Trinity

of Wings, Fries and Coke

Ready to face the next bit of the shit that life spits.

You’re a small god.
