Eggy Road – Poems from a Sixties schoolkid is a collection of mostly humorous poems reflecting the authors observations throughout their years attending a local primary school in early 1960’s. It aims to illuminate the daily goings on both inside and outside the school gates when (according to PM at the time, Harold Macmillan) “You never had it so good”.
The poems are certain to jog anyone’s memory who grew up in that era, bringing back their own experiences whilst bringing a smile to their face. It provides some insight into what made school children tick in that decade and will have people reaching for the internet for more information on the subjects that formed part of everyday primary school life, before England won the World Cup!
The collection reflects the less complicated times enjoyed in formative years giving the reader an escape to that era. Encountering an interpretation of a plethora of topics such as The Fountain of Youth, The Contents of a Schoolboys Satchel, and that elusive Blue Peter Badge to name but a few, hopefully providing some laughter along the way!
