Photography – The Devil over Southampton and the Thunder Child

The Devil over Southampton

The fireworks celebration for the Queen’s Jubilee was an atmospheric event in the low cloud accompanied by the deep call of fog horns. The Devil looked upon Southampton that evening, closely followed by tripod invaders from Mars!

Fireworks over Southampton Docks

Thunder Child

There were ships of shapes and sizes
Scattered out along the bay
And I thought I heard her calling
As the steamer pulled away
The Invaders must have seen them
As across the coast they filed
Standing firm between them
There lay Thunder Child

Moving swiftly through the waters
Cannons blazing as she came
Brought a mighty metal War-Lord
Crashing down in sheets of flame
Sensing victory was nearing
Thinking fortune must have smiled
People started cheering
‘Come on Thunder Child’
‘Come on Thunder Child’

Thunder Child
