THE GOOD OLD DAYS

For Friday Flash 55


40 YEARS AGO

When I was a kid,
home was a decrepit
two up – two down
until the council
shifted us
in the slum clearance.
Mum, Dad, Gran
Two brothers
A sister.
Four damp, smelly rooms.
Coal fires.
Outside toilet.
Black and white telly.
Two beds
and a settee
between us…

We were poor…

but we were happy.
