an eastend saga
Big Terry Swan, an old skinhead from the traditional mould,
Wakes up on his 60th birthday, feeing lonely and old,
Stuck in a Poplar Tower Block, wife and kids gone, mates moved on,
The 21st Century pushed aside, the values of this old ex-con.
He has a walk round his old East End, to find out why,
He drinks far too much, and has a tendency to cry,
Why he used to be respected, even after he was arrested,
But now feels all washed up, isolated and rejected.
Can Big Terry turn his life around, find a way to vent his angst,
At rampant globalisation, and wankers in Canary Wharf banks?
Come and check-out this riveting tale, of how contemporary greed,
Left this ageing tower block resident, feeling like an ancient breed.
Join us in our heart-felt songs, and hear our poetic narration,
As we challenge the views and values, of this current generation,
Help us explore relationships, and what it means to be a man,
Is losing a sense of community, letting our children down?
