    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?
