Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A poem I scribbled whilst sat waiting in a local cafe in Wrexham
Do you remember where you were?
On those famous of days
Like when we went to war.
Never minding one or two
How about Vietnam, Falklands
Or even the storm in the Gulf.
Do you remember where you were?
The day those planes crashed
All of our lives.
Terrorism and planes now
Seem to go hand in hand.
Now almost everything we carry
Onboard is band!
Do you remember where you were?
When the people’s princess
Fell foul in gay Paris.
Or the king of rock & roll
Lost his life on the throne.
Stardom dulls when we die
So let us all sing and shine.
Do you remember where you were?
Well I do, I was at school when
Those Argies broke loose.
Then again, I was at work
In Wrexham when those
Two towers tumbled and crumbled.
I recall turning the TV on
To watch the early breakfast news.
Standing silent, eyes full of tears
As they broke the news of how
Di’s untimely death came at the
Hands of the paparazzi.
