A snapshot of Gatcombe Road -Circa 1956 !

A Poetic Contribution
Three metres from our comfy beds - where we rest our tired heads
Strides a man with a loud guitar - dreaming that he will go far
No consideration is he giving - to any others dead or living
Here the music-played out loud - can be listened to from any cloud
 CHORUS
 Playing loud and banging drums - noise from him always comes.

May be deafness has ensued - with silence we are not embued
Many years we have suffered - yet still the racket goes unbuffered
So when you’re old and need some rest - get well armed against this pest
Not affording insulation ( sound that is ) – could be a problem - an aggravation
 CHORUS
 Playing loud and banging drums - noise from him always comes.
