School Ties - Poem by Andy Brookes

Inky fingers.
hard wood seats.
paper lined.
lines to write.
chalk puffs from board.
white on black.
cabbage smells,
pervasive in memory.
polished halls.
a cap.
a blazer.
crooked tie.
scuffed shoes.
scabby knees.
Arden house,
green our colour.
muddy pitch.
football games.
a cup hard won.
and you
and me
and them,
what became of the class of 69.
