Greetings from Devon

I discovered the last postcard
My brother ever sent
He sent it to my mother
She kept it faithfully
Beside her birth certificate
And her marriage certificate
Where it waited to be found
34 years later
4 years after she died
In a box
Put on a shelf
To be looked through
When the moment felt right

Hello
I’m having a great time
Weathers quite nice
See you soon
Scott

July 1981
One month before he died
At the age of 21
In a motorcycle crash

The month Charles married Diana
Though he loved someone else
The month of riots in cities across England
Blamed on Thatcher’s economic policies
Though Labour couldn’t subsequently get elected
Because they were seen as too left wing
Led by Michael Foot – a good man
Whose face didn’t fit
Funny how things change

Hello
I’m having a great time
Weathers quite nice
See you soon
