Title: Tales From York River Bank

Giddy girls with feather boas
Pot-bellied men woo look-like-whores
A team of rowers carrying oars
On the banks of river Ouse.

Jostling crowds spill over decking
Several couples drunk and necking
Come-hither looks and “ey-up” becking
On the banks of river Ouse.

Mature strollers arm in arm
Children biking blitz the calm
Ducks and geese fly free from harm
On the banks of river Ouse.

Shoppers seek sunny benches
Already taken by tottering wenches
The occasional drift of foul drain stenches
On the banks of river Ouse.

The sun is shining, people laughing.
Fun and bravado, speed-boats thrashing
Pubs and restaurants all full and cashing
On the banks of river Ouse.
