Abbey Road Remembered.

I never trod that famous crossing

Where The Beatles strode three

Men in suits and one in jeans

 

Light footwear worn except for

One in moccasins hair past

Their necks and whiskery

Chins except for Macca so it

 

Seems the light was bright

Cars looking twee and leaves

Out on the trees

 

The road ahead appears clear

To me except for one car

Distantly but on a pavement

Nonchalantly a man stands

 

Resting hands on hips now if

He could speak of it I wonder

What his lips might say and

How much would his legacy

 

Bequeath historically or

Fiscally to those who never

Crossed the Abbey Road

Where once the Fab Four

 

Scousers strode and sang

The songs which helped make

Britain’s music industry and

Pop charts what they are today

Beatles

i think to improve this poem you may consider the line markers - eg -

I never trod that famous
Crossing where the
Beatles strode three men in
Suits and one in jeans light

would scan better on the page and thus carry better if -

I never trod that famous crossing
Where The Beatles strode
Three men in suits and one in jeans

etc etc make your lines as powerful as you meant them to be

You'd have thought the four of them could at least have afforded a taxi. Good one Philipos - always fun to read about you-know-who and his chums.
