Pasted Up In The Baltic, Poet 'D'ya Know What I Mean?' Have Given Us A Different Perspective On The Pandemic
Local Scouse poet Eleanor Hancock, however, possibly more widely known as 'D'ya Know What I Mean?', has wrote a poem for drug dealers who 'did not get furlough'.
The piece can be seen in various areas of the city, with this particular photograph of her work located in Jamaica Street in The Baltic Triangle.
2020 was the blues.
That we didn't choose.
Divided we were;
in receipt of 80% bills.
linin' up outside supermarkets still.
couldn't even meet me mate 2 chill.
So sat off in r's taking pills.
An' I'll have you know,
Drug dealers DID NOT get furlough.
Those with cash on the side,
Simply could not apply.
But it's imperative to survive.
And to the dole we must lie.
- D'ya Know What I Mean?
DRUG DEALERS DID NOT GET FURLOUGH.
