A holiday must be on the cards

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

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