High Church
Low Church

Whilst sharing a coffee with my lovely wife

In a poignant street in Newportown

I became concerned at the number

Of High Church and Low Church buildings

That we had passed on the way from the railway station


A waitress with a tattoo on her right leg

Assured me that all was in order

As the churches were quite evenly spread

Which was not always the case

Near the railways in some mainland towns



Costa Coffee

This island town has fine Costa Coffee outlet

The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable

About coffees throughout the world

But for some reason they became reticent

When I discussed the ongoing problems

Of managing a tidy Brazilian
