Dingle Town

In Dingle town

Near Grimney Moor

People live each day

The day before

As you would think

This causes confusion

Because Monday is Sunday

So it’s quite an intrusion.

Wednesday is Tuesday,

And so on and so forth,

The compass points southwards

When it should simply point north

The people walk backwards

Because they cannot walk straight,

And they always arrive early

But it is always too late.

Much of the time

People simply stand still

Their journey seems pointless

They don’t have the will…


‘To walk without knowing 

The route you should take

Is enough to make going

Seem like a mistake’.
