My Batley

by Mohamed Saloo

From the cobbled stones to the hills of green

Timeless vision of a Batley scene

Rich in history, diversity and faith

United in pride, friendship and praise

Vibrant in colour, fragrance and sound

Pleasant by nature, friendly all round

Red bricks, sand bricks, chimneys and slate

Walls and rooftops, that makes Batley great

Towering clock, in the market square

Memorial gardens, to show we care

Passing strangers, with a friendly nod

A place where friends, don’t mind being odd

And then I witnessed, from a cobble bay

When Batley united, for Festival day

A final boast, I think I should add

It’s nice to be a Batley lad!
