A Letter From Glen

 

When you go

Will you send back

A letter from Glen

 

Such a delusion

Such confusion

I stayed too long

 

I took a look

At the West coast

From Glasge to Oban

And beyond

 

Gigha no more

Tinlayon no more

Skye no more

 

Southend no more

Paul Macartney no more

Thank the kirk

 

Why do I have to remember

Remember the hurt

 

Lochgilphead no more

The House On The Hill

A bitter tasting pill

Rehabilitation in the community

 

Tourism is a little different

To real life and an institution

Thank God for West Coast Motors

And the 926

 

Calmac no more

Tarbert Parish church to more

Anti-English no more

Anti-incomers no more

Paranoia no more

Troubles no more

 

Kilmartin Living Stones no more

Oban’s teaming tourists no more

Barra no more

Mull no more

Colonsay no more

Ardfern no more

 

Tea towels in Inverary no more

Haggis no more

Square sausages no more

Deep fried Mars Bars no more

 

Argyll and Bute no more

Fir trees no more

Five radio channels no more

The Community Centre no more

Libraries open part-time no more

 

Very limited resources no more

The Co-op no more

Tesco’s Extra no more

 

Negativity no more

Scotland no more

I just had to break free
