Johnny Headspeck

Rookie (1962 / Yorkshire)

Knife

I carried a knife
When I was a kid,
Four inch blade
Keen,
Sharp,
Never without it,
Always ready,
On the streets
The canal towpaths
In Town,
There –
Next to my right hand,
Easy to reach,
Quick to draw,
Just in case,
It was okay though,
He said so
That Baden Powell.
