By Steve Hunt

Location: St Mary’s Church, Moston

Last night I pissed
Where Cromwell’s feet
Once stood

As he prepared to mount
His mare
Or stud

T’was St Mary’s Church
On St Mary’s Road
Near Nuthurst Park
Off Lightbowne Road

You know the one
With the blue neon cross?
Like the one with the red one
At Brent Cross?

I walked through
The churchyard
Down Memory Lane
On Mother Kelly’s Doorstep
And back again

And remembered the time
When we fell in love..

It was just a song on Radio 1
Played by DJ Alan ‘Fluff’
Like the free man
Who pissed on the stair
Where Oliver Cromwell
Mounted his mare
And polished the brass plate
On which it state

Here stood the man
Only four foot eight.
