Distressed skyline. 

To disscus in hushed tones the townships 

musical virtues when maypole set square 

Still holds more popularity than polythene 

Wrapped vinyl and collecting wine requiring 

distressing in antique labels than watching 

a pityful plaything hall with a fist full of formaldehyde 

The facade of trust fell away around its Illustrious 

ties too a Turkish past evident in architectural  

Featurettes now hidden behind multi story skylines 

even if the greens show signs of speak easy 

drought its History it is still there evident 

In the waltzing riverbed alongside

wild thatching remnants of rooftops

Once filled with the Trappings 

of swifts successful nesting.
