Calder Valley will rise again (a poem in solidarity)

For those affected in Hebden Bridge and surrounding areas..

When you look out the windows
To see the flood
And when the clean up begins all is left is mud
When the sun starts to shine through the rain
The Calder valley shall rise again

When businesses are ruined 
In just one night
When the damage is permanent
No end in sight
When it's hard to be optimistic
Let me explain:
The Calder valley shall rise again

For all those affected
Who I regularly see
I send solidarity to you from me
We are the unbreakable 
Yorkshire spirit
Fueled by stubbornness
And tea
And as shall pass eventually

for one last time
We'll chant in unison
Against this rain
That the Calder valley shall rise again!
