1973 schools out
Rossant

We were needful of Jook's sound,
 1
because they played "Crazy Kids".
 2
Parents as empty as blanks
 3
teachers no better.
 4
The leaving age at fifteen,
 5
told us we soon have the bragging rights.
 6
The real breakthrough was
 7
in ones bedroom yanking up the volume.
 8
Power pop was elemental -
 9
ergo cropped hair and rugby shirts
 10
and the ubiquitous wattage
 11
that shone for the last summer term.
