Title: Circus Lane

Have you ever stumbled upon Circus Lane?
Have you seen its narrow cobbled ground,
Have you walked at night
When the moon hangs over Saint Vincent’s kirk
Like a beggar’s tooth?
Or wandered through in the dreich haar
Waiting for Mr Hyde to crawl out of the mist
Like a troglodyte from his cave?
Or perhaps you’ve only passed through by brightest day
And wondered at time,
That has left this drowsy street behind.
