Battersea Powerless Station

We feing surprise as we rediscover the past

And whatever has been forgotten is called new

Such is the vanity of the know-it-all

The armchair-diggers of the lost ark

Battersea power station was all about power

Now the centerpiece of a fifteen minute town

The railway and the bridge look the same

But trains now transport a new merchandise

No more proles, but consumers…
