    Default Lost Stars on a Walk of Fame (CTG)

    Lost Stars on a Walk of Fame

    Clearly not made to last for good
    like the walk in Hollywood,
    the photos evoke more shame
    than everlasting fame:

    the stone of The Merseybeats shattered,
    as if their feats hardly mattered,
    and Adrian, my late poet-painter mate
    -- his stone deserved a better fate.

    One dedicated to Dalglish, the football star,
    renowned from Anfield to Quatar,
    the veteran Scouse comic, Ken Dodd,
    both stars missing a leg -- most odd.

    Another stone pulverised, alas, alack
    -- that of songstress Cilla Black,
    formerly Priscilla White, the Cavern coatcheck girl,
    who awaits some lasting walk to be unfurled.

    Christopher T. George

    "I took these around 2004 before they were lost forever,
    the original Liverpool Walk Of Fame from the Old Festival Gardens Site."

    Though they haven't maintained the walk of fame,at least the display of Liverpool no'1's,in Mathew st. has had a wash, and brush up,recently!! That was looking a bit tatty,so responsibility for it's maintenance is now with the Liverpool business community,instead of the council,so hopefully, it will remain an attraction worth having!

    Some towns and cities
    like to boast
    of their long lost history
    Here lie the bones
    here the ghost
    of some sundry royalty

    These poor cities we pities
    and instead toast
    our singular singularity
    we proclaim with one accord
    that we play host
    to the world record record
