I saw Martin this morning and we greet each other
Like old school friends for both of us
Have seen the view from
The House on the Hill,
Chastised for our public behaviour.
He cadged a cigarette instead of offering coffee
This morning, as he said
We all have our ups and downs.
The street buskers are boring us
It’s too early for the pan pipes which we
Agree send us to sleep
Met some tourists from Minnesota
Charming visitors and I discovered
I know more about Bath than I ever
Should or expec-ted.
