Poems -> Life :  Kaleidoscope Of Past Jersey Unravels.
 
Past Jersey Unravels.
Straw bonnets, with crinoline & bustles.
Embroidered jackets, & whalebone stays.
Lilly Langtry busy, wooing a toy boy Prince.
His manners & obeisances, of a gentleman.

Past Jersey Unravels.
Seduced by a taverns aspects, and delights.
Plus brandy, smuggled across from France.
Cider in France born, to England shipped.
No disreputable, tippling establishments.

Past Jersey Unravels.
The market place, full of home products.
A clandestine meeting, of knaves, & fools.
Cheat, beggar, criminal, a street vendor.
Lives of luckless dupes, down at heel folk.

Past Jersey Unravels.
Costermongers, selling barrow wares to go.
Whelks, winkles, jellied eels & ginger beer.
Daily penn'orths, of medieval curd & whey.
Afternoon, of "A Royal Jersey cream tea."

Past Jersey Unravels.
Snuffing candles, or dousing street lamps.
Chimney sweeps, and horse drawn vehicles.
A vagabond, sells tooth powder & tinctures.
Poverty, always hiding around the corners.

Past Jersey Unravels.
Queen, Castle, Lord, Ladies, Royal pomp.
The beach, home to a punch & judy show.
Mothers made brushes, to feed their imps.
Busy witch-hunts, with fascinating details.

Past Jersey Unravels.
D'la Soupe D'anguille, conger soup dinner.
Chicken, Lobster, a predilection for Royals.
Prodigal insouciance, of the St Ouen local.
Roast beef, dumplings & black butter jam.
