Name change

After searching for the original title "Poetry from a small Island" it would apear there are lots of sites with that name. So i've changed it. I've also added a comment bar at the bottom of each post.

GOODBYE LUING


I was  told a story of how some well meaning council official some years ago had suggested that the whole population of Luing could be housed in  high rise flats, it would be more economical.
 
They’re shutting us down
It will be better
Argyll and Bute sent us a letter
You’ll be better of in high rise flats
They did declare
Where we build them we do not care
Your too much trouble to us all
So pack your bags and cancel the coal
Leave the Island as quick as you can
Shove your belongings in a removal van
We’re scrapping the ferry,
So you’ve been told
Our council budget has been put on hold
We don’t care if it rains or freezes
We do what we want
And we do what we pleases
You voted us in now we want you out
Give us a bridge, did I hear you shout
Believe you me, you will feel better
Aren't you glad you got this letter
Ten storey up in the sky
I bet your still wondering why
don't ask questions or raise a fuss
Instead of a ferry you will catch a bus
Don't you worry about tomorrow
Get today over
There's been enough sorrow
Its no use crying
We've made up our minds
Were just doing this to be unkind
Put on your hat and close the door
You wont be back here anymore.
