What Identity Crisis?

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.
