We all want to get home

nothing to do
nothing doing
pass time sleeping
every few
then tea between

a friend is coming
bringing me wool
knit squares
send them

keep fingers going

at home
watch telly and so
that’s company
a lady across the road
she pops in

always peopling
can’t go home til
I can stand on my

and fro on the bus
all in
had a blackout
91 years

don’t know if I’m bettering
long passing
shared my bedroom
one brother and two sisters
winter's cold wool

keep fingers going
