Goodbye to Hawks Road Clinic
Enclosed into gated estates,
Hawks Road Clinic at the cusp of demolition,
where a developers paradise awaits.
Met Nitty Nora, zapped veruccas and warts.
Health staff wafted asbestos mothballs,
& essence of Jeyes Fluid with old farts.
Long - winded ante - natal classes with their
throw-name, cushion-games; ground down the room.
Praise for the wisdom of the iced - finger glove
the new babes created a free contraceptive clinic boom.
On the tarmac no more mammogram pantechnicon.
No more recognition song for the spires of Jack - in - the - hedge.
Trees gone, stump - ground, dissappeared by attrition
Blackbirds no longer crave subterfuge.
I say 'Goodbye' they say 'its only 2 buses to the clinic in Surbiton'.
