The Here And The Now: A Beautiful Peace

Robert Wyatt
Language: English


I’ve been walking for hours,
Needed a rest.
Take a good look around,
Nowhere to rest.

There’s a shop
selling gentlemen’s suits.
Further along
an estate agent or two.

And a take-away sign
over a dusty door.
Shiny photos of food,
slightly microwaved.

There’s a methodist hall.
No smoking
No dogs
in the methodist hall.

It looks pretty grim
in the methodist hall,
despite a poster which says that
‘He’s There for Us All’

And it’s a beautiful day,
for walking away.

It’s a beautiful day,
but not here.
