He'll no be there
by John Makin
A smart young man was out one day
Clipboard in his hand,
When down the street he chanced to meet
A worker of the land.
“Do you know Old farmer Giles
That works the Bank Top Farm?”
“Happen I do”, he says and smiles
And takes him by the arm.
“Go down the street and round the bend
And up the covered way,
Then along the road right to the end
And two miles up the brae.”

Don’t Wanna Fall by Claudia Scali
I don't know why I'm here.
I don't know what I've become.
My whole worlds disappeared.
Now all I fee is numb.
I'm just trying to make my way,
make my way, make it now.
Trying to have my voice,
have my voice be heard out.
