The Ballad of Jackey

Mary - not the mother
nor the sister
not at all the baby-sitter
Its simply Mary.

She lives near the high way
where people crowd the cross-roads
to pack their shopping bags
with groceries and Oxfam goods.

But Mary - not the buyer
nor the seller
not at all the banking teller
Its simply Mary.

She walks along the side walk
looking towards the steeple
where there-a lots of old people
Gathered for coffee and religious pep-talk.

Yet Mary - not the poem
nor the national anthem
Not at all the village bunkum
Its simply Mary.

Yes, its simply the best:
Mary of Jackey.
