Intercity Canal Life


They called it “The Big Ditch”

It’s filled with water, flowing up from two rivers

making their collective way toward the west

meeting up with its Liverpool Cousin.


A long time ago – It Carried large ships

taking cargo to places far and wide

But new lines lift the strain –

With Cargo moved now by Train


So canal carries people not things

and pleasure to people visiting it brings

with museums by the football stadium, hotels and shops

the canal life keeps moving and doesn’t stop
