Ghost Town

The other day I was walking past ironmonger row
    When I noticed boarded up, every shop window
    I dare say they will be sold or knocked down too
    This town just seems a contrast of old with new

   Why destroy every land mark like the old fire station
  Why not build a theme park or more commendation
   Where’s the green belt and where are all those trees                                                                 
    I just felt I should mention all that’s left is memories

  I remember Owen and Owens before it became alders 
  And now yeah they have changed the place yet again
  Dose anyone remember that little shop called ralffers
  Well yeah I know, everyone says that was all back then

 They can change the city but not the views of the people
 The only place that retains it's history, is the old cathedral
And what dose Coventry mean to me?, like most I just frown
Well nothing really, like everyone says it's just a ghost town

           Inspierd by conversation with someone in libray
      Short and sweet just something else to write about a time
pROBABLY SOUNDS ABIT CYINICAL  BUT BEING HONEST
COVENTRY DID HAS SOME GOOD POINTS BUT NOW ITS FADED AWAY   
this was apost to be entered in to a a small compotision back in sept 2009 
but missed dead line unsure of subject matter at time
