Walkley History

News, events and discoveries of the Walkley Ways, Walkley Wars history project.

One Day Two Day

One Day Two Day

The loud ‘bring’ of my alarm clock wakes me

And I drag my body to the staircase

With my fleece dressing gown wrapped around me.

As I walk past the flashing TV,

I see that my sister loves Noddy.

Still with sleepy dust in my eyes,

I wolf down my Coco Pops, pops, pops…


The loud ringing shout from mum

Like announcing eggs and bacon

But I know it’s not for my tum,

Because the word is looming over me –

Rationing, rationing, rationing…


I stomp upstairs,

To brush with the minty fresh toothpaste

As I walk into the room, a beady eye from the bears

I undress and enter the warm embrace

Dripping, dripping, dripping…


I bounce upstairs

To swallow my minty fresh liquid

I walk onto the hard boards and take off layers

Embracing the cold water and

Tingling, tingling, tingling…
