    Gannon


    I Woz Ere - The Short Ode Home.


    Among the faded 40's glamma
    I throw caution to the wind;
    with it my sense of grammar.

    Beauty, albeit in prefab form,
    sprouts in bashful (car)parkland,
    showcasing tha wise trees forlorn.

    Mini-roundabouts & lager louts,
    summer strollz & power-outs,
    corner shops, young mothers,
    historic bridges & young luvvers.

    I thus caress, rather than scrawl,
    a statement of sentimental intent
    upon the warm, and forgivin' wall.
