#Fowc #Advance #Museums

A group of eager young minds

Dropped in on a historical building or two today

Very interested in taking in the displays

And getting a feel of some real items used of the time

Now , anyone could tell their enthusiasm was building as one or two led a

Charge up the stairwell –

Except for one thing – none of them knew their way around!

Hourglass

Salford, 30th December 2018

The seconds tick on by

With each single grain of sand

Falling softly into the hourglass

Each second passing

Moments in history

As the grains keep falling

And Father Time watches

As his birthday approaches

And it’s time to shave the beard off

Girl In The Tinted Glasses

Salford 11th December 2018

I don’t know what it is with you.

You’re there at the same time, same day

Same Reaction to my appearance on the opposite platform

Gawping like a primary school kid

I’m not an alien – and i’m past caring

what old style clothing you think i’m wearing

attitude of a kid of an age

who isn’t even working for minimum wage

To try and catch my attention,

You flounce and pout

And if stood with your pals

You scream and shout

 

Maybe you think i’m “The One” for you

Oh if only – that were true

Giggling with your pals – shows you ain’t older

even if your attitude seems any bolder

Perhaps, you think the camera footage

will catch the eye

of an X-Factor Judge at Mediacity

but all your peacocking gets from me – is pity.
