feeling the pinch
inspired by a brilliant accidental radio remark
families living in poverty?
no one lives in poverty now
me dad was killed in the mines in ‘49
me mum had to bring up seven of us on next to nowt
I was talking with another old boy
about how tough it was in our day
how easy these young folks ‘ave it now
‘I know, ‘ ‘e says, ‘if you was cold when I were a lad
you just put on another jumper.’
then I knew
he didn’t understand either
how could a man with two warm jumpers
possibly understand what its like
not to have a jumper?
