Poetry

From Wapentakes To Member States

In the Princess Royal Infirmary

By Green Head park's Dutch Elm Disease

In Saint Trinity's diocese

Of Huddersfield in Kirklees

On the rolling hills of the Pennines

In west West Yorkshire's older times

Was the Agbrigg and Morley wapentake,

One tenth the Thryding of the west they made

Of Yorkshire's total great enclave

One of 84 counties

Of one of 4 home countries

Of one of 28 member states

Of one of many blocs we have made

Of one of one world I love

Is where I was born, and

To all, is where

I belong

In equal part they share my heart
