Red Sky at NightbyUnderYourSpell©
"Red sky at night is a shepherd's delight
Red sky in the morning is a sailor's warning"
"Where does the sun go at night Joe?"
"It shines for them kids in Australia Petey
it's all fair and proper."
"Do they have bread 'n drippin' for supper too Joe?"
"Don't spose so Petey they eats kangaroos."
"Do they play on the bomb sites too and collect shrapnel,
did their daddies never come home?"
"Time for bed Petey, it's blackout time."
Red and gold streaks bathe the sky
promising hope for a new tomorrow
epitomising us if we did but know it,
two raggedy assed Cockney kids of the 40's
holding hands and watching the sun go down
over Hackney Gasworks.
