Ancient

by B.F. Kirkham

Salford, 20th October 2016

 

Among the Modern tower blocks

and chic café quarters

the old bricks tell tales

of the city history

 

Listen very carefully,

and beyond the sounds

of modern cars

different wheels are turning

 

Steam whistles pipe

as the engine wheels turn

and locos roll on

like it was yesterday

 

Aircraft await

their signal to move

ready to go

with a simple jump

 

Whilst across the road

Legions Amass by Roman Bricks

Preparing to March

Down Liverpool Road

 

And Young Glass buildings

Smile in the night

Breaking the silence with juvenile quips

“Hey Grandad….You’re Ancient!”
