According to Freewayriding, 'Curly Marx wishes to announce his engagement to the wonderful (if slightly automated) Bar*bra Code, everything from here on in will be decidedly peachy!'

Cold Machine

BARbara Code Marx

When I fell

(In love I mean)

I gave my heart

To that machine

A voice like silk

In tones of honey

Glad to insert card

Or money

Slowly empty

Shopping cart

Does she know

She's scanned my heart?

Dreams of love

And wedding bells

A dress of 5p bags

She sells.

No honeymoon

On far-flung beaches

Quite content to

Scan my peaches.

I've fallen fast

Fallen hard

Ten million points

On loyalty card!

A million pounds

On cards is owed

A tiny price

For Bar*bra Code!
