Yesterday I came across some treasure while having a clear out. Dating from 1965, it was a reminder of a gentler age of innocence. How many of us would like to stop the bus and get off? I then remembered through the swirl of pink-coloured spectacles that I had been too young to have a single memorable memory from those times!

I was up in the attic
Clearing out some boxes
Why do we keep so much?
We hoard like bleedin’ foxes!

I came across some comics
Dated ’65 September
It was a from a different age
One I can’t remember!

Back then there was no internet
Obama was only four
David Cameron hadn’t even been born
And radio came from boats offshore

The Mini was a fashionable car
The Beatles ‘Top of the Pops’
Mini skirts were all the rage
And boutiques replaced clothes shops

The swinging Sixties were in full swing
Strangely enough I don’t remember a thing!
