.5. Itchy Pants


I remember my grey flannel shorts
What an itchy woollen hell
I remember they went past my knees
And didn’t fit too well

I remember being the only one
To have this unique fashion
I remember how they chafed my legs
I hated them with passion

I remember always scratching
Teachers told me stop that please
I remember how my pals all moved
They all thought I’d got fleas

I remember trying to lose them
When I changed for sport at school
I remember things went missing
But not these things you fool

I remember sliding down a hill
Till I wore the backside through
I remember feeling so relieved
For the long ones lined brand new

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
