Retro

Poetry

In response to Fandango’s One word Challenge

They say if you can remember the sixties – you weren’t there

but fashion’s a fickle thing

Millennials walking down to the disco

in an homage to their Mums and dads

with some wide flares and knee high boots

listening and dancing to tunes on played on vinyl

that mum danced with dad when they were young

there’s something missing with that digital stuff

no feel, snap , crackle or pop

hearing the groove from the record player – its top!

Thoughts of the long distance runner

Salford, 12th May 2017

Down the long stretches of Tarmac he goes

In darkness, fuelled by apples and bananas

Some call him crazy, but others they smile

Taking to the deserted road, to break down his time

All for the prize, of reaching that line

Nice shiny medal and Achievement awaits

Could records be broken this year ? A possibility

Expect a great smile as the target is reached

In honour of Dame Sarah Storey – who’s just become the UKs most decorated Paralympian.

Surpassing all others on two wheels

Paralympic gold tally record – broken

Rio watches and applauds your achievement

In getting the record number of golds

New dame holding the record – that’s gone from the swimming stadium

To the Track of a different kind – the velodrome
