THAT'S MY WORLD
It's such a pleasant place to shop, tree-lined, and traffic-free;
Hunter Street Mall which lies between the river and the sea.
There are shady little spots where one can rest ones weary feet,
And restaurants which offer quite delicious things to eat.
It doesn't really look like a White Elephant at all,
But where are all the shoppers in this quiet little mall?
They've gone off to the suburbs, to the Shopping Centres there,
For shoppers show no loyalty; they just don't seem to care.
They'd rather have the jangly-wrangly atmosphere of centres
Where noise and crowds assault the ears of anyone who enters.
Resuscitation's needed, but who knows where to start?
This corner of our city looks to die of a broken heart.
