A poem in response to Danny Piermattei’s letter entitled ‘The rest is history, past and future’ (Star letter, September 28).

Still making a fuss

I agree with much of Danny Piermattei’s letter

But there was a time when Sheffield looked better

As those who remember will already know

So Danny, do take a look at The Star’s ‘Retro’

We had many historical buildings, now gone

And there was a bustling High Street for everyone

So I’m sorry to still be ‘making a fuss’

But town was once great for many of us

And it’s probably due to nostalgia I fear

But I think folk smiled more in yesteryear

And yes, it certainly pains others and me

That so many good things are just history

We didn’t discriminate well about what to keep

And too many lovely old buildings hit the scrap heap

But I think your letter must be ‘tongue-in-cheek’
