Cumberland, Cumberland

Where have you gone, my friend

For progress, you were rearranged

Now, I wish that you could mend

The silent trains no longer run

Your streets were ripped apart

Strange places fill old spaces

Someone tore out your heart

Friends have moved or passed away

There remain so very few

The stores once chic on main streets

Are now unknown and new

The town as I once knew it

Has lost that familiar touch

It's sad to say my Cumberland

Is gone.....I miss it much

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Cumberland, Maryland, just isn't what it used to be!
