Pride of the Ordinary


Pride of the Ordinary



Before a fall is pride.
Yet I have pride to be,
Me and, an ordinary guy.

What riches give,
This sense of worth ?
A meal to eat,
Friends to share a laugh,
Neighbours who polite would be.

Making the ends meet,
Rewards the humble soul,
Sharing even more.
For we, the poor
The lowly working man,
Are proud to be, free.






A walk from Nottingham to the Shetland Islands 2012
inspired by the kindness of ordinary folk.
