Farewell poetry for B+R, by Simon J Hopker

 

KEEPING THE FAITH 👊

Connected, vibrant, end of an era,

When I worked here,

I saw things clearer.

Distant people seemed a lot nearer.

 

Working here, the energy was immense,

The gravity of the place,

Goes beyond pounds and pence.

 

Lovely people,

Lovely strangers.

There are no energy destroyers,

Just rearrangers.

What will happen next?

That’s what’s on my mind.

But for now,

Bread + Roses,

You were one of a kind…

PEOPLE MAKE A PLACE 🤝

The joy to be felt,

When you can cap something off,

Finishing with your head held high.

That people met, they drank, they ett.

And so a collective sigh.

It is a loss,

But not a permanent one.

It’s the people that bring the buzz.

Bradford’s not dead,

The community will be kept.

Bread + Roses – it was…
