#northayrshire Poem about #Kilbirnie Loch #scotland

Kilbirnie Loch
Stone age boats and sweetie wraps

Poisoned fish and old mine shafts

Factory buildings now collapsed

And youre still here to tell us “aff”
Burst your banks and stop the trains

Entertainment for the “wains”

For once near you stood iron cranes

Houses, rows and tiny lanes
Fishing trips and walks to Beith,

Marshland, wellies, colder breeze

Freeezing over, wobbly knees

Young men drown nobody sees
Steelwork slag dumped deep inside

Sweetheart secrets do confide

Joy riders drinkers out for a ride

Reflecting back their souls inside
For as we stare into your pool

As brown as beer or stained dyed wool

Reflecting back our wasted tears

And our wish for lasting years
