Ghost Town

Spidery webs of gangland crime
Infiltrate, corrupt; historic lighthouse
Overlooking a gunmetal North Sea,
Ruined medieval castle turrets awry.
Coast houses quaint, old-fashioned,
Derelict dockland cranes' decay,
Intermingled with limestone walls —
Peppering of child-age/youth figures
Milling around to no great purpose.
Ragged St. George's flag, UKIP area;
"England for the English" graffiti grime,
Post-industrial, pre-tourism ghost town.
