A poem about one of those Shane Meadows films

The cast of This is England

Here’s a poem about one of those Shane Meadows films. I forget which:

Urchins at play

1.

The 80s aren’t like they were in the 80s,

But, nevertheless,

Boggzy, Danno, “Grandma”, Milkmouth,

Kneesy, Weggso, Darren, etc.

Went down to the canal,

Booted, skinned and trim,

Whereupon a ruffian got lairy

And shook an old love

By the duffel coats.

I’ve caught a Thatcher he said

And his mates went wurrrrgh.

2.

One of the skins chucked a muffin

On to the train tracks.

What else are you going to do?

3.

With a hey nonny alright mate,

Watch out mumble mumble.

You can come round to mine for tea

Mam’s making proletarian crumble.
