Nick lived here

I live in a section of the town that was

Bombed during the war

So my flat was not built by slaves’ hands

But so I know it was also the poor

Who wept here for the place

Was a hovel built for the

Workers of Bath

Not the elder ministry

It should be clear that

I live upon the remains

Of the daylight hours

Here.
