Rockferry Terry.
There's a myth about a man called Rock Ferry Terry...
He's not easy to understand
and he's certainly not ordinary.
He's got strange views to equal insane ideas
but he won't be expressing any of them this year...
See, Rock Ferry Terry is living in fear...
He quite simply doesn't want a career.
Rock Ferry Terry has never wanted to earn a living,
see, he's more about taking and even less about giving...
And true, it's no crime to survive by the state
but he's spending his time believing that's fate...
He doesn't do very much to help himself,
and although he finds solace he's slowly destroying his health...
He could be identified by his smell and the clothes that he always wears...
He never changes his appearance,
and he never seems to care.
So Rock Ferry Terry is someone that everyone seems to know,
and that's a fact that he hates but that's how it goes...
So his anger and animosity continue to grow,
but he'll get a little high to stop feeling so low...
He has a heart of controversy
and no one to hold...
And a history of misery
has left him uncurably cold...
It's shuddering realism but he knows that he's getting old...
So the truth behind the rumours suddenly unfolds...
Rock Ferry Terry had potential...
He was a talented man.
He was born to a Poet and a Prophet
yet he lives in an old camper van!
He travels around using an acronym
because a long time ago he committed a sin...
So with a sudden and tearful confession he informs the Police
that he shouldn't be free to roam the city streets...
See, he's wanted for murder in the town where he was born,
where his name is recalled with vitriol and scorn...
A grieving family still has a price on his head,
a vast amount of money as a reward for the man that they want dead...
Still, it's only consolation for lives torn apart
but for the sake of revenge at least it's a start.
Rock Ferry Terry is a man that everyone seems to know...
He's immediately recognisable wherever he goes...
So as the truth behind the rumours continue to unfold,
Rock Ferry Terry is worrying about his life and it's beginning to show...
But that's how it goes
when you've allegedly murdered a family member of the Mafioso.
Rock Ferry Terry won't be hanging around
because the Police won't believe his story as no body was ever found...
So he gets into his camper van and while wearing a frown,
he insults a Police man and gets the hell out of town.
Two days later Rock Ferry Terry was found dead!
He was battered and bruised and had a bullet wound to the head.
It's rumoured that he asked a stranger for directions when he found that he was lost,
and the stranger just happened to be a Mafia Boss!
Rock Ferry Terry is now remembered as nothing remarkable...
His decline resigned to a small section in the corner of a newspaper article.
This is a story often told in Rock Ferry
and you'd be sure to hear it if your name was Terry.

A most interesting story rhyme, whether true or not does'nt matter, it shows imagination and is well thought through, a pleasure to read.
