A Liverpool Poem, sadly not mine
« on: May 21, 2012, 06:05:15 PM »
A cry from Dale Street of ?Exsy Echo?
Brown mixed in pubs whose names I don?t know
The Ice Rink, the Grafton all places long gone
And screams from the Cavern of ?I love you John?
John Kirk got Liverpool?s very first VC
A boy from the workhouse, the way it should be

Down Scotty road, I can?t forget them
Black clad women and limbless men
Snotty nosed kids with filthy necks
No shoes on their feet, no arse in their kecks
A penny return on the twenty nine tram
With a bottle of water and sarnies of jam

A trip to Garston to play on the beach!
Who said Utopia was out of our reach?
Two pigs feet, a big pan of Scouse
Four in a bed, its cold in our house
Its what I remember when we all had nowt
I?ll love my Scouseland till I peg out

Blue and Red, Roman and Prody
I think that covers, most everybody
Oh Jeez, oh eck, how could I forget?
Chinese, Jew. Black and Brown
And eight hundred years
Now that?s our town.

The poet forgot to mention, 'Lime Street'. But written as only a scouser could, as the Famine raged in Ireland in 1847, 800,000
Irish people  landed in Liverpool, and thats why 'Liverpool' have Wayne Rooney. :D

Beginning to see why you didn't get that job at Liverpool tourist board, you aren't making me want to spend my tourist euros there!  :D

We people of Liverpool know what an amazing culturally diverse city that we have and that there really is no other place in the UK like it. The humour of our people, the stunning rich architecture, splendid museums, theatres, galleries, the Philharmonic Orchestra,  not one but two Cathedrals each equally as spectacular as they are different ? the list goes on and on. Is the rest of the country aware of what they are missing out on if they have yet to visit Liverpool? Awarded the Capital of Culture in 2008 the city has continued to build on this well-deserved award, over the summer alone we have seen festivals celebrating all the different cultures that make up our population.
Unlike any other town or city, It is a fact that Liverpool people, wherever they are on the planet will immediately recognise and bond with each other as complete strangers.

Liverpool don't have Wayne Rooney, he plays for the gang up the road.

I hear that Liverpool has the award of European City of Culture.
Police are investigating, and expect to return it to its rightful owners very shortly.
 ;D

With such a very rich `turban` population in our cities, they  really should have the edge over the plural populations, as encountered in the `country`, something to do with education ,no doubt ?  Used to called the ABC`s. maybe taken over by, a football culture ?
this with an Irish slant to it, more potatoes needed, that`s for sure. in chipped form naturally.

Galty seems to have much experience about matters North West, methinks with their chosen nom de plume, he or she may come from or have, ancestors originating in the capital of Liverpool.
To be sure.....

Ah! the memories came flooding back, Cammel Lairds, Seacombe, Albert Dock, The three Graces,
and I don't suppose you'd know or remember what the Gor?e Piazzas were Galty?
