River Street Urchins – Author Mark Andrew Heathcote

 

River street urchins

The gutters are swelling.

[Waiting] for the sky—you, I

To reach—the storm drains of joy.

Before we go

Before we let go.

 

We too will rain

River street urchins

Before we go

Before we let go.

We too will rain

River street urchins

 

Paupers oh, so giving, don’t you know.

We’ll queue in the streets

And pray to be free

Till we go

Before we let go.

We too will rain

On every official bank holiday parade:

 

Till we’re free, till we’re free

Till we’re free, till we’re free

Till we’re free to go

We’ll never clear-out:

Absorbing as every stain there might be.

 

I’ll fabricate a new colour?

A rainbow’s pot of gold…

One for just you and me.
