The Web Poetry Corner - J D Cully - Stanley Avenue

Stanley Avenue

by

J D Cully

She looks through the shutters and stares at all
The things she can't afford in the shopping mall
An old drunk p1sses up the wall
In Stanley Avenue

You've tried that juke box far too long
It keeps on playing the wrong song
Feels like you just don't belong
In Stanley Avenue

A girl of 14 drinks vodka on the rocks
Ladders in her tights and holes in her socks
Outside kids set fire to a pillar box
In Stanley Avenue

Sarah's getting carried face down
Out of the New Inn
Davey and his girlfriend
Are having a quiet night in

A young wife opens a Special Brew
To go with her tin of Irish stew
Her husband's stuck in bed with flu
In Stanley Avenue

At home with the radio, that was me
Thanking God for LBC
A ba$tard lovely place to be
In Stanley Avenue

Nights like this are a bl--dy strife
Lying there thinking of my ex-wife
But always look on the bright side of life
In Stanley Avenue
