Nottingham Lace is a thing of the past
and these modern versions are made much too fast
on factory machines from far-away lands
but Nottingham Lace should be made by fair hands!
The label says ‘Nottingham Lace’, for sure,
and many might buy some, on a visiting tour –
though you may find it, on Nottingham’s Market Square
there is plenty that’s crooked, when trade isn’t fair.
