A song and the Thames

The killing of Georgie

Carries poignantly on the Thames air

A Roberts transistor on the Embankment

How grand

How sad

Nothing more and nothing less

Who would damn him to hell I thought

And why?

Nobody I know

It’s the weekend

And rugby men make their way

Along the tree lined south bank

They stop for sustenance

At their favourite watering holes

Then joyously they march

Towards another Waterloo sunset

The bravest of men

I guess.
