houses cemetery car sales football ground
		blue sky cloud sun and rain

billboards traffic yellow lines wound
		bus goes here and there and back again

black arrows bare trees seasons found
		B&Q Matalan bus station town

churches closed cross forlorn neglected stands
		years wane, skin worn, heart goes down

sun rises, and the rain, cloud upon cloud
		look up, joy lives, fight the pain freedom pen

try hard, walk and walk, grit the teeth be strong
		stand tall, all in one, live it live it plain
