Buddy Holly is playing in
The prize winning public toilets
Of a Lichfield car park.
Now that’s a long way from Texas
And seriously mainstream.
Maybe my daughter
Twenty nine and a veteran of motherhood
Will one day squat on the far side of the Atlantic
To the strains of Johnny Rotten
And as for my granddaughter
I can’t even imagine
How the world will be
When Prodigy gets piped
To everyone of life’s conveniences
Alternatively by then
Will not be considered such retro activities.
