Spike Milligan

(16 April 1918 – 27 February 2002 / Ahmednagar)

Indian Boyhood


What happened to the boy I was?
Why did he run away?
And leave me old and thinking, like
There'd been no yesterday?
What happened then?
Was I that boy?
Who laughed and swam in the bund*
I there no going back?
No recompense?
Is there nothing?
No refund?
