Claygate 1954

Bowler hats and brollies on the 7.42,
(Hinchley Wood, Clapham, Waterloo)

privet-packaged houses, net curtains a-twitch,
shanks pony for the hoi-polloi, Bentleys for the rich'

Sunday allotments, cabbages and beans,
Morris men outside the Swan, cricket on the green,

"Rag 'n' Bones!" on Tuesdays, bobby on the beat,
 sweets from the corner shop - Saturday treat!
