Bramshott Hill Ladies Bring Home the Trophies Julie Bailey (left) receiving the Cup from President Mary Annetts The Hair Dresser by Vic Lee I used to get my hair cut By a man down our street And always promised to pay him The next time we’d meet Well I always forgot my promise And never bothered to pay my debt And I never, ever worried As I thought that he’d forget But he did not forget And the next time he cut my hair I must have nodded off As I settled in the chair When I awoke with a start His joke I didn’t share He thought it would be funny To cut off half my hair I was completely bald, Down one side of my head One side of my head was white While my face was Scarlet Red From the right I looked like Ken Dodd With a mop of curly hair From the left I was like Yul Brynner Bald and completely bare! So the moral of this story Is plain for all to see Pay your bill as you go along Or else you’ll end up looking as daft as me!! My Wembley dream was over, The boots had been put away, They said I was much too old, “I’m afraid you’ve had your day” So I took a coaching course, To manage a football team. And passed on skills I had learned, To play now was just a dream. The years passed into decades, Then walking football came by. They played at a local club, So I thought that I might try. The lads soon made me welcome, They still had their skills to show. So with their encouragement, It was time to have a go. I’ve played in several games now, Alas I have yet to score. I still have plenty of time, For I’m only eighty four. IT’S NEVER TOO LATE by Jim Dolbear SEND YOUR POEMS TO 2 HIGH STREET, HYTHE SO45 6AH
