10 October – Crowded out

If you want to walk in Grassington you need to get up with the lark
to be totally sure to guarantee there’ll be enough space to park.
Although it’s not always cars of walkers that fill up every space,
but large gangs of sheep who think they own the whole place.
Good luck finding room if they’ve come out in force,
they’re utterly prepared to stop you seeing Linton Falls.
They don’t believe in Welcome to Yorkshire’s open philosophy,
it’s your departing they are marketing as their top priority!
But if you squeeze in somehow and finally get your break,
at least they won’t block your way to finding tea and cake.
