Once Upon A Time In Manchester - Dermot Moroney

Black night, blue light,
Cocaine covered bullet
Explodes inside a brain.
Red milk, grey shards,
Pebbledash the floor
Lifeless stricken stain.
Hitman, death squad,
Walk out through the door
Into the acid rain.
Gangland, drug war,
Shooting through the street
Into a ruptured vein.
Wild-eyed, gunfights,
Terrorise the weak
Taxing the insane.
Nightclubs, white lines,
Gangsters run the town
Doling out the pain.
Doped up, bombed out,
Razored in the face
It’s Manchester’s refrain.
