Sad looking twenty`s plenty signs
Still out there — what a mess!
How soon or long before they go
Is anybody’s guess.
It makes a mockery, I feel,
Midst conservation jewels
To have them hanging so forlorn;
Negates protection rules.
And just in case they are removed
While Chronicle goes to press
Rejoice indeed! – For certainly
They really looked a mess –
But then – just wait – if fresh ones come
As large as those before –
The Square and High Street freshly dressed
With windblown cards galore!
Ah well – cheer up -The jetty hedges
Still not cut – – – I thought
A winter trim would take less time
With no leaves, — growth is short.
But good news? In six hundred years
Of Kibworth schools there`s more
Amazing benefits coming froAcademies galore???
To quote, if I may, a regular correspondent to the Chronicle letters’ page – the late Jim “Bud” Stevens -“Keeping smiling”.
