Life was a never ending game,
I had a sister, a playmate, games were never the same.
We played with the neighbour's kids, in each other's gardens.
Life was fun, with no limitations, until the wall.
Yes, the wall!
Well, I was still small!
I thought I was superman, invincible and all that,
Well I had my cape! (Mum's old sheet)
I was as daft as a bat!
So this one day without a thought in my head,
I ran hell for leather towards "the wall!"
Arms outstretched - SNAP!
Bone snapped in two and sticking out of my arm,
Well I don't believe in doing things by halves, you know.... well where's the harm? :)
Except this was just before the Queen's Jubilee, when the Queen would be passing through our village - but not coming for tea. :)
It was all planned, plastic flags to wave and shout,
Only now we had a plaster cast and sling to add clout,
Still, we saw the Queen, we smiled and cheered,
And all was forgotten when she appeared.
