and that my mum would have died.
Who would have thought we'd have the internet,
and that I would have four children.
Who would have thought we'd have damaged our planet so badly,
and that I would become an artist.
Who would have thought we'd have small communication devices to carry in our hands,
and that I would suffer from depression,
and talk about it on them.
Who would have thought we'd have a pandemic,
and that I would write poetry.
Who would have thought that every house would have a computer,
and that a packet of fags would cost fifteen quid,
and that we'd still be drinking coca cola,
and we'd have lockdowns and have to wear masks,
and that Woolworths would have closed,
and that the city would have a top flight rugby team,
and that our TV signals would come from outer space...
and that it was 50 years ago I was at school with you...
and that I'd be 60 this year...
who'd have thought it!
