KPH

Enticingly on the street corner she stands

this old Victorian lady of the night

yet all who enter these doors

venture into another time and dimension

where those that imbibe

unwittingly star in their very own play

as we seek to save our KPH

iconic symbol of a bygone age

 

Before social cleansing and gentrification

fuelled the rage of this band of brothers,

sisters, fathers, mothers, lifetime friends,

part-time lovers, black, white, rich, poor

those that have lived outside the law!

 

Like Shane or John Wayne we’ll stand for what’s right

Johnny Cash’s man in black, the band plays tonight !

But this is no Alamo or Custer’s last stand

our community diversity culture never figured in your plans

as you seek to destroy what you fear and don’t understand

you redevelop our estates, pubs, kick us out of our homes

but your money can never buy our spirit heart n’ soul

the true vibe of the Grove
