My Town

By Kay Forristal

In my town there are singers, shopkeepers
Tradesmen and dancers
Pub-crawlers and musicians
Crawthumpers and prancers

There are good neighbours and gossip-makers
The curate and the craftsman
Women of every stratum
Peace-maker and harridan

There's the scholar, playwright, poet and bard
Pompous, mocking foolish blackguard
Soothsayer and earth mother
In my town we laugh at ourselves
We help dry each other's tears
For we know that our inherited strengths
Will chase away all fears

2000 Kay Forristal
