(as Tom Harding was mentioned in a comment on his recent wonderful poem and amazing sketch!)
this is my grandmother
in grandpa’s van fully loaded with bread
having salvaged all the sautéed bread they can
everything is up to date so its not too late
deliver it free of charge to those people and community groups
struggling with the high prices of the past (BOO!)
brown breads, white breads, barmcakes and much more
To eat today or hang in anyone’s bread-hungry freezer!
like old people, soccer clubs and so many church groups
for spreading with butter and jam, toasting or dipping into soups
for all our peoples of all ages, boys and girls
I hope Granny survives being crushed.
That’s her, not a garbage bag wearing the glasses!
