Bilbao

looking down

from the mountain above

on Bilbao

the river snaking through

in from the sea

the docks are going now

when I first came

thirty years ago

these were dark dangerous places

herri batasuna graffiti on all walls

where you went only

if you were on a mission

for a score

a whore

for blood

& now

they are building apartments

housing for rich people

where warehouses once stood
