Paisley Rain

Poetry By: Robert Kerr

A grim appraisal of the state of a once-great town.

Generations of drip-fed misery -

Taking comfort in grim familiarity.

Hopelessness masquerading as defiance -

A piss-wet town with no umbrellas.

Faces soaked in disappointment -

Not daring to care.

Streets long dead but still existing -

More funerals than weddings.

Showers give way to downpours of horror -

Bleak pain dulled by Valium.

Puddles reflect grey obscurity...

"Paisley - a proud past and a bright future".
