The Gentrification of Your Life – Written Friday 27th December 2019 (Aged 44)

The Gentrification of Your Life

i have known for all these years
the gentrification of your life
is complete
you have finally
redecorated every street
low grade to high grade
the ‘hip’ views move in
and the ‘unfashionable’ past moves out
the character is lost
the truth can no longer stay
the gentrification of your life
why does it have to be this way
i have known you all these years
have you really forgotten
that i know your truths?




James Garratt – Friday 27th December 2019
