he preferred the maudlin poetry
of old men, filled with reverie
and of their truth

A Song Called 1977 And All That.

pebble dash the litter bins
and paint the school bright green
this time is the sunniest
that you’ve ever seen
print jokes on your lolly sticks
street parties for the queen
this year we were innocent

but keep the jokes all clean
this life is the happiest
wearing our flared blue jeans
