The Pike — A Poem For Lancashire Day

Time to honour our gradely county* for Lancashire Day so I wrote about The Pike — a part of the landscape I see first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

Lancashire Day is on 27th November every year.

*REAL Lancashire includes Barrow-in-Furness to Manchester. Reet.

Pikes arrrs
Sez womon
In Aggy Cwop
Horwich Mon
Sez think
Thee not
Jog on
Borth sez
Belmont lad

That hills ars
Since me Dars Da 
Da Da were a Dad
All of you
Best think on  
Lord Lever wheezes

The Pike is 
On my map
For the Bolton weavers

To roll down on
Good Friday and 
Crack their yeds

Folks aboon 
out tha
minds surely

Council chap
Puts Pike
In Chorley

Even e 
Groans at
Ar futility

Govment sold
Land tuh
Watter utilities

Hang on high land 
Wer a 
Celtic throne

Bin ar beacon
Fer last

Me make
Cup ring stone

Colourful wings

Red rose
Head nods
Intuh wind

Mother Nature
Owd as hill
Sez Pikes 

Fer evrewun
Allus wer 
Allus will
