The Pretenders - Poem by The silent Poet

Camden quick grab your Trilby hat,
your scarf and stylish shoes,
and all else that suggests that we live a life,
as free as we may choose,

and as for Hampstead we don cravats,
and accents middle class,
a waistcoat and maybe swill my wine,
as I sniff my costly glass,

I'm going to try out Brixton today,
so I guess a baseball cap,
and all the slang I learnt at school,
from bad boys white and black,

the vintage stores, I love the 60's,
devoted I truly am,
I capture the essence of the age,
In my crappy little three wheel van,

My long lens camera, SLR,
I'm creative behind the lens,
and daily updates on my facebook,
inspires all my friends,

BUT alas its Monday and so I must,
put away all of my Props,
Because as you know I'm really about,
the journey to the top,

I'm a pretender of course I copy all,
I have no core beliefs,
I merely do what I must,
to ensure I will achieve.
