I read the front page article ‘Game Changer’ (May 13) and wrote the following poem.
What ever happened to the interesting shops of yore
When one could spend all day shopping down the Moor?
Some will think me old-fashioned and maybe it’s just me
But Game’ and ‘scanty undies’ just aren’t my cup of tea
The Moor’s target audience is students it would seem
But I’m sure they’ll still prefer the shops at Devonshire Green
The market seems so dull and I’ve no use for a gym
But there’s one saving grace, my eyes are getting dim
So I must look on the bright side I expect
And look forward to a pair of fancy modern specs.
Like me, many customers are over seventy do not forget
We’re not that interested in a gym that is apparently called Sweat
Now I’m getting on and I don’t want to sound too sour
But isn’t it we ‘oldies’ who have the spending power?
Just take a look at Retro and see Sheffield of yesterday
Anyone will easily see that Sheffield’s sadly lost its way
I’m yearning for improvements, getting tired of the wait
For a Moor that’s suitable for everyone, before it is too late
