GHOST TOWN

I walk the town

I pass closed

Down shops

All boarded up

To let signs

Wither worn

Shop windows

Some cracked

Work of passing

Drunks

Or bored youth

Others broken

Plastered with

SALE! SALE! LAST! DAY!

Yellowed and peeling with age

Pound and 99P stores

Charity shops now dominate the high street

As I walk ghost pass me no where to go

No where to come from

Ghosts indeed eyes look dead

At best zombie like

Dead or dead in feelings inside

A ghost town complete with it's ghost

Hi Ken...this is another great one from you, my realistic friend...

And by the way, one of the lines sounds like a great title
for my own biography, as it so well describes this old guy...

The line is, "Yellowed and peeling with age "

Your old and getting older, old friend

What a sad true reflection of the times we live in.

Depressing - not because of how it is written - because you tell it how it really is in the towns and cities up and down this country.

Nicely written.
