Into The Alley of Death

Dave & Viv have doubled up

Their house in Upper Tean

It’s really rather special

A wonder to be seen

But if I go to visit them

Where once I went with Sally

I have to first negotiate

A really fearsome alley

It runs beneath a bedroom

With walls on either side

Just waiting with its jaws of brick

To scrage one’s auto pride

Oh, many souls have passed this way

And many bear the scars

Inflicted on the sides and front

Of what were pristine cars

It’s hard to run this gauntlet

And even when it’s done

The exit on a main road bend

Is there to seal the fun.
