Romford Market.

I was born in the East End of London
Grew up in a City atmosphere
Whatever it was like in country life
Because we’d never ventured there
Until we were evacuated during W W 2
Into Suffolk’s countryside
Away from the bombing in London
I suppose it was somewhere to hide
When we came home an Occasional treat
Was to Romford Market by bus or train
To see all the various animals there
And go shopping in the Market again
Where they sold almost everything
Clothes , Shoes ,Night ware and such
Even Groceries and Household products
Fish and chips costing not as much
But to see all the Farmers
Making sure their stock fetched a good price
And for those that didn’t sell
Had to return to their Farm and suffice
For that was before the age of Technology
Of the computer and Mobile Phone
Because nowadays it often Sales are Online
And Mobile Photos you condone
