Frank Poems: PETTS WOOD

Wiki: Petts Wood railway station
Royal Mint: Sixpence

Where I was raised
Was split by a railway line
Into a sixpenny
And a half crown side.

Till I was ten
We were sixpennies
But then
Half crowns.

Half crowns and sixpennies
No longer exist
And none of us live there
But Petts Wood’s still split
By a railway line.

Wiki: Half crown (British coin)
