Life on the Thames

Life on the Thames Peaceful Clean Tranquil Neat Heaving in circles Breaking a sweat But my work lies on The river Thames Clean skies Open wide Hope that I will never die Listen carefully Seagulls screeching The river Thames Calling for me Working all day Rowing all night Wishing Wanting For my payday rights Young we start old we end Our lives are different We’re first young Like the river Then done like the river Polluted Dirty Noisy Ugly The river is a monster Rubbish it is No work is available The Thames is gone I already died Listen carefully Seagulls screeching The river still calling for me Wishing Wanting For the river again Working years, 10 It’s hard for a lighterman Jonathan.
