Town Centre

The hustle the bustle

Merely a muscle memory

Shoppers return but manners hold sway

Not driving in droves

Crowds do not reassemble

Town centre does resemble

A shadow of former self

Its pre covid glory lost

When shopping went viral

Shop keepers became shop losers

Foot fall fell as people voted with their feet

Balances gone small business smaller

And kicked whilst they are down

Windows boarded and tills empty

Shops that remain without the jingle jangle

Change subject to change In the era of the card tap

The throng would be wrong

As we queue in separation

Personal space respected

By the masked strangers

Fore street now before street

With a past but what future?
