The Voice of Malpas
My name is Malpas
I was born as Depenbech centuries and centuries ago
I have a brother in Newport and a sister in Truro
I am perceived to be wealthy
I eat Cheshire cheese
I play the church organ
My pets are pigeons and porkers
I welcome children from everywhere
My colour is green, changing to terracotta
My arteries are blocked with 4 X 4s and tractors
and my temper gets frayed
but I am proud of my outlook
and I am safe and secure
Written by the Craddock Court Group in a workshop with John Lindley
