For The Mayor of New York

Dear Mayor Bloomberg
thank you so much for your support.
It means a lot

particularly in these dark days
with the shooting of little Rhys

It is fitting that New Yorkers are Freemen of our City
we share the same roots

deprivation and despair

but also the same ebullience of spirit
we always bounce back
because we are of the same blood
born of fair play and generous courage
in the face of adversity

And in this our 800th year
as we clasp hands
with such firm grip across this
tempestuous sea of life
we salute you old friend
God bless
Liverpool and New York together
we will never walk alone.
