A Bridge Too Far.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Just another Spring time day,
Busy people on their way.
Children take in the view,
And tourists of a different hue,
All mingle as they pass by.
Then there is heard a womans cry,
A fanatic in his car,
Scatters people near and far.
A mother now lays dying
Leaving two girls,soon be crying.
An old man of seventy five,
Sadly no longer alive.
Kurk Cochrans once happy day,
Now cold and still where he lay.
PC.Palmer lays bleeding,
Sadly life is receding
Was there to withhold the law,
He was brave and stood there tall.
Now candle lit vigils are kept
Young and old together wept.
For in strife we all stand,
Together walk hand in hand.


PC.Palmer was a Charlton Atheletic supporter and at times like these we all forget our rivalries and stick together.jim
