The Life of Pool

Here lies the gateway to the world and far
ships of steel sailed the seven seas
dockers unloaded containers ajar
the latest goods and china teas
importing and exporting the life of pool
with stories of a great city and great port
though the media think they played us as a fool
no other can compete with us in culture, music & sport
with this I cannot forget to mention the fab four
merseybeat, anfield, goodison and all who live here
two cathedrals, museums and galleries gallore
albert dock, the pier head and cains beer
the life of pool will forever go on
multi-cultural and of humour it may be
as a community we are all as one
all of us proud to live in liverpool by the sea
