    Default The Muddy Muddy Mersey (CTG)

    The Muddy Muddy Mersey

    Tomorrow, at midday, I'll
    receive Mummy's ashes
    in a plain box, eschewing
    an extravagant receptacle.

    The time's come to collect
    her and to take her home,
    to the city she knew before
    we sailed that ocean-blue.

    Aye, come next year, I will
    scatter my Mummy's ashes
    in the muddy muddy Mersey
    -- the Mersey of memory.

    Christopher T. George

    If I lost you yesterday,
    and no one said a word.
    You are still here with me,
    A part of me, no less myself.
