Life in 1953

Life in 1953

Walking to school in the freezing ice

Just our plain shoes and our coats as thin as paper.

Itchy shorts made of wool and cotton.

Shovelling snow while walking to the toilet

Creepy crawlies lurking in the shadows

Walking in the cold makes me shiver.

The louder the shout from my dad

Is less for my tum.
