Wise words

Angry? I should say so!
Raging I was!
Never thought I’d see anything like it.
Whole of Bagshot Row dug up and spoiled.
Years of work, near enough broke my 'eart.
Never thought I’d hear the likes o’ them words from the mouth of my Sam though.
Wise words them was, wise words…
‘Time to move on, Gaffer’ he says. ‘Rebuild. Replant. Make better this time what wasn't right before.’
Or summat like that.
Any road up, he weren't wrong.
You only has to look at that there Mallorn tree to see.
Reckon I brought him up right after all.
