girls who’d seen things

we were restless then

full flush of youth

only ever buying used cars motorcycles

girls who’d seen things

they did not ever want to tell

all of us just expressed from our parents

bosoms or clutches you choose

living on friends floors in cheap rents

caravans sheds cars

knowing that as we could afford

we would move on this was acceptable then

we were restless to be doing

never doing be to be always do

all that unfortunately was to come

after we’d found long term work

girls who had seen done things

they could would talk about

in the better rooms we’d worked our way to

better cars motorcycles stuff on loans

then the babies to anchor our feet

in work places we would much rather flee
