People Think…

People think

I’m not from the city

So I must be a bumpkin

Only suited to the country

Ploughing fields or raising cattle

Sitting on porches and chewing tobacco

And that I wouldn’t survive

A night in the hustle

Of the big city lights

And the traffic and the bustle

But they don’t realise

I was born from the shadows

That the city cast down

Spawn of the darkness

And to these streets I am bound

And while the city sleeps

I come alive


This started out as a general observation of what (let’s be honest, a very small proportion of) city folk tend to think about those from rural areas. It took an unexpected turn.

My laptop has died. Any purchase of my book would help put me in a position where I could replace it.

Or Buy Me a Coffee and we’ll be bestest buddies forever
