Northern Soul

Red brick ravines,

flagstone fences,

grey grit carpets,

smoking snow.


Extinct mill chimneys,

boarded windows,

paint tagged walls,

stolen moor.


Grass littered pavements,

starched railings,

mattress splattered entries,

living poor.


Hardened not beaten,

economy weakened,

cut and exposed,

northern soul.

Excellent Shirley Anne, you will have to come and perform this and some others at my Guitar n Verse night in Tyldesley, will go down well.

Thanks for your comment on 'The nearly was man' Jeff

It still has a heart... it will always have a soul. ;)

Is it really this grim up north?
Very bleak, concise observations Shirley-Anne.
Good work.
