Special Mixed Kebab |
by Neil Fulwood

In a crime movie, the old "take this down forensics"
scenario would apply, a detective barking an order
about a report on his desk first thing in the morning.
In a sci-fi spectacular, it would be something
not of this earth. But this is Friday, pushing midnight,
ten pints down your gullet. This is a special mixed kebab
and you'd rather not know what it consists of.
