The Spirit of Youth (Cans of Stella)


Youthful exuberance
In hoodies and tartan caps
Wild
Rabid
I will beat you because
My girlfriend thinks I'm hard
With my tracksuits
And my Nike kicks
Bottles of Stella
Ella
Ella
Ay
Ay
Ay
Drink ing my cans of Stella

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
