A holiday must be on the cards

I’d like to sit on the deckchair in
my backyard and watch the daffodils
grow,
have a barbecue
a beer or two,
wear my Jesus sandals
with socks of course
because
as you already know
fashion has its home in the North,

listen to the wireless set
I
wonder if Cowdrey’s got his
century yet,
a handkerchief on my head in case
of sun
what great fun,
yes
a holiday must be on the cards.
