I Never Met Jim Callaghan
Although he reminds me
Of childhood
What Crisis?
Benny Hill
Chips
(The food, the TV show)
The Wrestling
Giant Haystacks!
Sideburns
Fags
B&H and Major
Grandstand
And World of Sport
Dickie Davies
Brian Talbot
Graham Rix
Pat Jennings
Alan Sunderland
Those other men.
But I digress.
Jim Callaghan
I remember
Existed
Like our Austin Allegro
And my tricycle.
Miss World pageants.
Thames TV – and that noise:
Dur dur, dur, dur dur dur duurrrgh
And Sale of the Century
And Chorlton
And the Wheelies
And News at 1 with Peter Sissons
And Ryvita
But:
I Have Never Met Jim Callaghan
And sometimes it’s hard to believe
That anyone ever did
But of course, of course,
They did.
