I stopped one day, up by th'canal
and watched a lad, there with his pal.
tarpaulin on the floor of white
with spraypaint of colours all very bright.
Michaelanglos Novices, would have been proud
as they took to the wall, as a canvas aloud
producing a picture, on a canalside wall
with humour and colour, to be enjoyed by all
Now, this picture was not a lazy drawn tag,
you could tell by the paper and colours in their bag
and if people had seen the wall at the start,
you would have considered the young man's “Graffiti” as art.
Abandoned warehouse, no longer used
is now bursting wi' colour, from artwork infused
and people walk down the canal wi' a smile
hoping the artwork, stays round for a while.
