IN SEARCH OF A SUBJECT

Brought up on fish fingers

and church on Sunday.

A lawnmower land

of new beginnings.

Robin Hood and Batman

carried the day.

 

Not from here, nor there;

not middle-class or worker

and wrong accent

as my part-time pals

would remind me

and not much good at fighting

or football or maths.

 

Enamoured of the pen

from an early age,

a pensive, semi-detached scribe

scribbling in notebooks

in search of a subject,

hungry for dirt and adventure.

 

Sarasvati 057, June 2020, Editor Dawn Bauling.

Hi Greg

My mother sent me to a school in another area due to delusions of poshness. Result was kids from both neighbourhoods considered me an outsider.
