A yearning for a return to times when life was easy.

If unspoilt Caribbean sands

were my childhood

Complete with doting palm trees

and crystal topped seas

Then the yellow rivers of Manhattan

are my here and now

Forever caught in a tide

of too much to do

There are no one way tickets

back to yesterday

Only a hole ridden vessel

destined to sink into tomorrow
