Praise Song for the Road Sweepers of Hammersmith & Fulham

By: Kate Noakes

The Poem

Halleluiah! for your dawn bravado,

sporting neon so highly visible.


Hurrah! for your proud selection

of lurid green brooms.


Hurray! for your cheerfulness

faced with pavement pizzas.


Hail! your corner diligence

for cellophane and fag butts.


All hail! your tolerance of foxes,

should-know-better kids and grown men

too far in their cups to care.
