Title: Summer of 76

Bare-footed kids wearing nothing but pants

Lolly pop sticks wreck the houses of ants.

washing-up liquid bottles an arsenal of tears

cleanin the dirt from the back of our ears.

Gold grass and green and African brown

freckles and sunburnt shoulders, furrowed brow.

Orange Jubblies torn at the top.

Combined Harvester top of the pops.
