The Guardian is my grandfather

The Guardian is my grandfather
of cricket scores among reports

by weighty words [delivered by
an other paper boy] – My round

took me at six AM to richer hills
out of town [Telegraphs]- A full

sack of information slapped on
my thigh – I sped for £2 a week –

I’d take Grandad’s broadsheet
from our hallway before eight –

whilst [in other news] Dad read
a first edition Evening Standard

over a slurping bowl of soup – I
now take my ‘paper at all hours

in my palm – I have not handled
a news sheet in too many years
