Forty-year-old Sandwiches!


40yo sandwichMany years ago I spent a school summer holiday working for an agricultural engineer called Willie Williamson, in Baldock. I’d cycle the two miles from home with special sandwiches, that my mother had made, in my duffel bag. Recently I joined a group of villagers on a working party to tidy up the churchyard. We’d been asked to bring food to share. I decided to replicate history…

I made some sandwiches,
My mother used to make,
To go in my lunchbox,
Beside a slice of cake!
She’d take some bread,
Spread on some Dairylea,
The add sliced cucumber,
Was good enough for me!
Si  replicated,
This forty-year-old snack,
And at the end of the day,
There were none to take back!
