Treasure Island

Peter Hall

(Sydney, Australia.)

But that is life in Glasgow


The impressive buildings on the Glasgow sky
Compliment life on the River Clyde
With its many secrets it cannot hide
But that is life in Glasgow.

From the understated Squinty Bridge
And George Square to Buchanan Street
Makes it hard for a 'Weegie' to leave
But that is life in Glasgow.

A 'Weegie' takes the good and bad
Supporting a British with Scottish flag
And tension flows between the clans
But that is life in Glasgow.

It's music and it's celebrity stars
Do not hide its gangster past
No such thing as a 'Weegie' facade.
But that is life in Glasgow.

Glasgow life gets under your skin
The richness of a life it brings
A melting pot of good and sin
But that is life in Glasgow.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
