Winter in Skegness

Winter in Skegness
No-one to second guess
Standing on the corner
I couldn't feel forlorner
Seem to have lost the folks
Dad with his silly jokes
They can't have gone too far
Probably by the car
I've bought flowers for my mother
Though she told me not to bother
So I stand amid my fears
Stranded .... in middle years
Tomorrow back to the city
Where the world is fast and witty
Winter in Skegness
A few days away from stress
And although I'm feeling stronger
I couldn't manage longer
