Like a friend

I went all the way to Liverpool
and sat in Derby Square
Victoria looked down on me
as I was sitting there
On my iPod rather fittingly
the Beatles played a song
about a girl called Eleanor
to which I hummed along
Appropriate to hear that
near to where the song was penned
fifty something years ago
familiar like a friend

A day with the fab four

For a moment today I went back in time
and stood with four Liverpool chaps
John, Paul, George and Ringo too
whilst tourists around me took snaps

Later on I met Eleanor Rigby
In a street as she sat all alone
Cast in bronze for all time by Tommy Steele
on a bench not of wood but of stone

Then down in the dark Cavern Quarter
I paused for a while by a door
and took a picture of the original entrance
once frequented by the famous fab four

But then it was time to leave sixty three
and come back to twenty sixteen
departing Merseyside history
where today for a while I have been
