Over two hundred year roots in county of reverence
Place of birth and 1960’s appearance by grace of god
Baby boom nipper, Hyde Terrace emergence
Taken northward while still fledgling.
Birds not on drift southward, as in migration
Baby boomer appreciative of area resettled
Despite heart always being beckoned by genesis
Tormented, though abandonment of forefathers situ not option.
Refusal to acquiesce on identity isn’t without repercussions
Mind scrambled by unrelenting tribalism, foolhardy or not
Been back in roots domain over score years
Repercussions not banished, though baby boomer tormented no more.
