No Shop Tills Ring

Early today they lined the road with traffic cones.
Along Arkles Road and many other Anfield homes.
I saw lots of trucks and lorries from the Worlds TV.
But around Anfield tonight, no football fans to see.

As kick off time gets near, now a darkening scene.
As tonight Liverpool welcome Brendan's new team.
Closed to traffic, as per match day is Anfield Road.
Normally by now, lots of match traffic has flowed.

But these are not 'normal' times, I want them back.
I look from my window, the night's becomes black.
The stadium lights are on, they brighten up the sky.
Like strips of sunshine from nowhere, passing by.

I see many stewards, their fluorescent jackets glow.
A few selected vehicles park in Stanley Park below.
On the corner in the Arkles Pub, no songs to sing.
And all around the desolate roads, no shop tills ring.

A good piece of observation Mike.
