And the other Labour Leaders?
Harold Wilson escaped me:
Although born in his Britain.
My memories start
Only after
He was gone
Nothing of Marcia
And Morceambe and Wise
And Lord Kagan
And the pound in my pocket
And suchnot
Was part of my world.
I came too late for that
To remember it.
It went with my coming.
So there were no possibilities.
Before that.
Or for me.
No Gaitskell
Or Attlee.
How could there?
But Keir Hardie. Lived in Hammersmith
Became a West-Londoner:
Would have passed by the Odeon
Which is gone now
But was not then
For him.
Or for me.
