CAPITAL OF CULTURE  by Jane Canning

Liverpool, Capital of Culture 2008; greedy businessmen can’t wait.

The bid is announced, we aim for the heights; politicians want their name in lights.

The people rally to the call: we’re something special after all.

Liverpool humour so well-known; a wealth of talent, all home-grown.

The people of Liverpool win the day and carry the glittering prize away

But who will benefit from all this culture? The man in the street, or the business vulture?

The city centre’s the jewel in the crown; the rest of LIverpool’s falling down.

Will the new wealth ever filter through to the likes of me and you?
