The First Time


the first time

the first time
I left my son alone
seat G 110
the West Stand
Walkers Stadium
was a big moment
for both of us
a pukka pie and a coke

The Walkers Stadium is now The King Power Stadium and my son is now eighteen.
A Pukka Pie? Well yes, but washed down with a pint of India Pale Ale.
