Street Market

Get your

Apples

Oranges

Bananas

Vegetables here

The women would call

As they sat on crates

Sold from their boards or prams

Cold hands wrapped round a mug of tea

Cheap tomatoes today love, only the best

Would you like a piece of cod sir?

The fish lady would slip an extra one into the bag.

Hey love, got some nice pieces of jewellery,

Look at this, lovely colour.

Gossip would float from stall to stall

So would warnings of theft.

News of the approach of guards would send

Ladies scurrying down Henry Street

With their wares and prams.
