Street Scene by L.S. Lowry - Henry Graham

L.S. Lowry
is my name
painting streets
is my game

lots of folks
and tiny homes
they’re all the same
I hear the groans

but painting streets
in the rain
has given me
renown and fame

not to mention
nice pork chops
and lots of re-pros
in the shops.

L.S. Lowry
bound for fame
painting streets
is my game.

And now that all
of this is said
aren’t you bloody
glad I’m dead.

Henry Graham (born 1930) England
