Mr Peach Believes - Mike Hickman

Mr Peach believes that we will remember him,

he tells us as such, one lesson, when handing out the sheets.

He tells us he gets stopped on the street

by former pupils, keen to resume the acquaintance,

keen to remind him that he’d once told them the same.


Thing is, though, it’s 25 years later, or thereabouts,

and I cannot remember even what the man looks like,

let alone the content of any of his lessons,

and the only thing that sticks in my head

is what he told his Year 1s that day,

about his being remembered.

How sad.
