Islington

I went back to Islington
Where the songs are sung
By showbiz beggars,

I ate chicken gentrified
Long, long ago
By the silver spooned rebels,

I read the cake shop billboard signs,
Arched eyebrow jokes
Poking all the people,

And I inhaled mid-twenties dreams,
Doe eyed and naive
Like a dizzy Walter Mitty.
