Town Down
Rossant

Walking down the lane
 1
there's a sense of individual sacrifice.
 2
Mother's disappointed with her son.
 3
who has thrown a  stone at a Swan,
 4
tempting some unknown fate.
 5
By the river's edge  tyres
 6
have collided with the rusting prams,
 7
making for one big impression.
 8
People seem to have
 9
grown upside down.
 10
The Town is drying up,
 11
civility is a rare commodity
 12
it's got something else on its mind  
 13
no let up.
