Lovely to read a new piece from you and this is a cracker. SOMEONE NOMINATE! I am out of votes already!
The imagery, flow and content of this piece are spectacular and you have incorporated some very subtle but effective uses of alliteration, which I love.
This poem has much humour. I especially like the little boy using grandpa's walking stick as a trusty steed. A lovely image of childs play. I also like the description of fizzing pop- drinking so much your belly bulges. The best bit for me was the burping competitions. Oh what fun!
Thanks for the memories and the wonderful worded imagery.
I love the slightly humorous narrative the author employed, it takes you from the stages of life in a relaxed manner that screams "life's not that serious" from the bit about the child playing with a cane, to the ending verse. Great write.
