A Beautiful Peace

Oh look, there’s a dead rabbit… all flat… completely flat… Oh there’s another one…
What’s in the gutter… oh it’s a… one of those polystyrene… um boxes… that’s all… take away… there’s chips in there… didn’t really want to finish the chips… that’s unusual…

I’ve been walking for hours,
Needed a rest.
Take a good look around,
Nowhere to rest.

There’s a shop
Selling gentlemen’s suits.
Further along
An estate agent or two.

And a take-away sign
Over a dusty door.
Shiny photos of food,
Slightly microwaved.

There’s a Methodist hall.
No Smoking
No Dogs
In the Methodist hall.

It looks pretty grim
In the Methodist hall,
Despite a poster which says that
“He’s There for Us All”

And it’s a beautiful day,
For walking away

It’s a beautiful day,
But not there.
