A poem about Croydon - can you do any better?

WE LOVE a poem here at the Advertiser so thought we'd share one sent to us today, by reader John Oludotun Showemimo.

John, who says he has a "God-given gift" for verse, has penned this ode to Croydon and its many strengths, though we're not too sure about the "three feet" high buildings.

Croydon is a great place to live and work

The Whitgift and Centrale centres are close by

With good transport links and other shopping stores

See for yourself, come down and give it a try

The buildings dominate Croydon's skyline

Some of them are over three feet in height

From office blocks to multiple retail floors

This is what I call an amazing and pretty sight.

So much transport in the Borough of Croydon

Buses, National Rail, Overground and Tramlink

Getting around is very convenient and simple

It is much easier than you really think.

Let me tell you about the surrounding areas

Including Addiscombe and Gravel Hill

The Heathfield Centre is a magnificent place

The exotic flowers could certainly make you stand still.

Croydon is a great place to live and work

The Whigift and Centrale centres are close by

With good transport links and other shopping stores

See for yourself, come down and give it a try.
