The Young Woman At The Model Railway Exhibition What seemed like a good train of thought that morning or even the day or week before was a lousy idea now helping Grandpa at the Model Railway Exhibition Grandpa, your daughter should have given birth to a son But no, Grandpa had a family of girls and each a girl And only I loved him enough to play the boy Two years ago at eleven years old I would have stood by you proudly seen the envy of the children watching but now? What if this afternoon Roger, whom I love nearly as much as Grandpa, from class 3B turns up clutching the hand of a little brother? Today, Grandpa, I’ll stand amongst the old men who wear the don’t care clothes worrying about my hair looking for anyone I know Last time, Grandpa, I’ve blown the whistle on this I’m catching the five twenty four out of here For the girl at the model rail exhibition Easter Cardiff 29th September 2011
