Old Fart and The Bad Cat went to visit Pride Park in Derby and Lichfield Cathedral

Lily and Big Hinka went too we met lots and lots of new friends.

One Jane had a tattoo on her leg in Cyrillic script saying JANE!

From Derby To Lichfield

From one religion to another

Was less than 30 miles

One built of concrete and steel

One of red brick sandstone

Both an illusion

That carries us through the days

Both soared towards the heavens

People drifted in and out

Bags full of pleasure

Money filling the coffers

One waits for Saturday

One waits for Sunday

When voices will sing in both

Loud around Hallowed turf

And hallowed ground

One and the same

One’s eyes can appreciate both

One’s heart can be lifted by both

You don’t even have to believe

In the dreams they represent

You can just accept that

They will deliver the goods

On the right day

To the right people

Pride Park and Lichfield Cathedral

Yesterday we sprinkled some fairy dust on our bodies and visited The Veteran Cosmic Rocker in his home in a land far far away.

What a great day for OLD FART and The Crazy Doctor Who Feeds The Cats (Bad Cat).

“Veteran Cosmic Rocker”

The lights go down
The stage is set
The man in the wings breaks out in sweat
A backstage joker spiked his coke
While the dressing room was full of smoke
A crowd of fools got him high
He’s afraid he’s gonna die
He’s the apple of their eye

He steps into the remaining light
The crowd go wild
He’s outa sight
Arms held high in the sign of peace
His manager signed the one night lease
The house is full getting high
He’s afraid he’s gonna die
He’s the apple of their eye
(He struts, he strolls)
(His love is rock ‘n’ roll)
He’s the VETERAN COSMIC ROCKER

He steps into the remaining light
The crowd go wild
Arms held high in the sign of peace
His manager signed the one night lease
The house is full getting high
He’s afraid he’s gonna die
He’s the apple of their eye
(He struts, he strolls)
(His life is rock ‘n’ roll)
He’s the VETERAN COSMIC ROCKER
He’s afraid that he will die

Hinka left the home in odd shoes today. There was another pair just like this at home OLD FART said!

Old friends, old friends,
Sat on their parkbench like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass
Falls on the round toes
of the high shoes of the old friends

Old friends, winter companions, the old men
Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sunset
The sounds of the city sifting through trees
Settle like dust on the shoulders of the old friends

Can you imagine us years from today,
Sharing a parkbench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy

Old friends, memory brushes the same years,
Silently sharing the same fears

Old Fart and us are very confused over Saint George’s day this year it should be 23rd April But when you read the net it says other days due to Easter etc so we will celebrate it Today!
