Culverden was usual enough; it had
a school, a bakery, a pool, my Granny and
Grandad’s house and a farming shop
I never went to. Brock, Lila, my Cousins and I
Did what families do - swam in the school pool,
Rode in my Grandad’s old Morris 8, biked
In the paddocks, hooned around on the
Lawn mower and nagged for treats
From the bakery.
Doing nothing important.
