I live a life that’s up-beat

Where I can eat, sleep and cheat

I never accept defeat

Because I live on Trump Street


In my glory I speak with conceit

All my thoughts I do randomly tweet

Every idea, I liberally repeat

Because I live on Trump Street

Today Sarah hosts dVerse poetics and gives us a choice of street names. Mine is Trump Street (irresistible!)

Trump Street is a street in the City of London that was originally known as Trumpadere Street, probably after the trumpet or horn makers who once worked there or in the adjacent Trump Alley (now demolished). It was built after the Great Fire of London (1666) but completely destroyed by bombing during the Second World War and has since been entirely rebuilt.
