Mustard Wool

Blues and greys
school boy shades
remember
an early 60’s day
a heavy cable knit
not so subtle mustard
wool, younger brother
wore one too, playground
bullies pushed hard, elbow
torn, Mum will go berserk
us brothers took the bullies on
both got knocked about a bit
Mum, a silent view, she knew
her boys looked out for each.
