EDC Shorts: six words – lines – ‘poetry’ #95

English Schoolboy Memories Punctuation Free

Short trousers can’t remember if ever new

Pockets a handkerchief no money never any need

School dinners free milk walking two miles there and back

Saturdays a sixpence mint imperials aniseed balls in their little box

Sundays Dad at home football train set toy soldiers mother raising eyebrows

Early sixties Boxing Day snow began long month later would it ever go away

Long trousers become necessity Wellington boots drift walking into school

That summer turned eleven grammar school didn’t make it yet in other ways…
