Closing Down

Closing Down


Closing down!

Everything must go!

People,

Jobs,

Livelihoods,

So,


Get it while you can

Discount the lot

When it's gone

It's gone,

It's the only

Life you've got.


________________


A walk through the city centre early morning is a sobering reality check.

Count the empty shop units.

Count the shops to let.

Count the shops that closed because of #coronavirusuk

Count the shops yet to reopen, and may never do so.

Count the shop fronts uncleaned, splattered with bird droppings,

Count the shops plastered with advertising leaflets and graffiti

Count the people out of jobs

And keep on counting.
