Bridges - Poem by richard (mak) makinson

Underneath the canal bridges
Angler waits artist reaches
Graffiti scrawl pigeons breeding
Unused barges paintwork peeling
Excited youth mind aflame
With lover playing games
Rubbish strewn water course
River police spent force

Underneath the motorway bridges
Hedgehog dies muscle twitches
Graffiti scrawl old exhaust
Gypsy camp tethered horse
Lorry passing sports car
Freshly laid concrete floor
Long forgotten traffic cones
Van driver speeding home

Underneath the railway bridges
Motor repairs antique dealers
Graffiti scrawl Smokey walls
Thrown away abandoned wreck
Rubbish burns council let
Wicker basket carries shopping
Flea bites babies coughing

Underneath the village sky
Trestle table people buy
River winding boats galore
Holiday tours come ashore
Ivy covered stone walls
Roses round cottage door
Bus shelter graffiti scrawl
Dial a ride and the W.I.
