I grew up in a mansard
today I am thinking of Hansard and
Bosworth Battle ended the war of the roses and
Black Death brought a pocket full of posies and
Butterworth and Wandsworth and Wordsworth- who was the poet?
Steve Redgrave – did he sail it or row it?
Drake sailed round the world in the Golden Hind and
you pay 50% less on your TV licence if you are blind and
the welsh and the northern Irish have an assembly and
Glasgow has the SECC and London has Wembley and
12 or 15 people on a jury and which court settles what-
I try to remember with fury
I could go on forever
Does that mean I might be clever?
Or maybe just dedicated (hopefully not leading to be medicated)
My head keeps spinning
my friends have long stopped grinning
here she comes with more facts
where do you find out about parliamentary acts?
In the Hansard
Never knew I would find out about that when I grew up in my mansard.
