Gerry cross the Mersey

Gerry
put away his Mars Bars
hunched his lecky guitar
and asked
how do you do it?

Chipper Marsden grin
Granada-grey telly
Liverpool’s pride,
Liverpools solidarity

Gerry never let the sun catch us crying
by
leaving for big time places
claiming his roots
through
inverted binoculars
accepting awards
from far flung doctorates
another professional Scouser
become
Liverpool loser

Gerry took the
Ferry cross the Mersey
there he’ll stay
and ... will never walk alone.
