United in memory
rumpty

The Scala Kid ventured in 92
 1
all night cinema at King's  Cross -
 2
but we had everything trim then,
 3
Somehow the road was  
 4
not  laid with dust
 5
and we had our thrills -
 6
contesting Granada's windows
 7
with the latest  Saturday nil- nil scores
 8
and greasy spoons with mugs of tea
 9
to wash away the lived  in sense of invincibility.
 10
K6 Telephone  boxes  where we could  dictate
 11
our own order of play instead of today's 24/7
 12
servitude.
