celebrating and creating our own LGBTQ+ history in honour of Sheila McWattie

day twenty six

It’s not bricks
It’s not mortar
It’s not doors
It’s not walls
It’s not carpet and fittings
Or curtains and trimmings
It’s smells and it’s memories
It’s noises and whistles
It’s baps is the airing cupboard
It’s nettles and thistles
It’s home brew in the shed
And it’s mice in the corn
It’s badgers in the chicken run
And bare feet on the lawn
