They say if you remember the sixties you were not there but if you don't remember the summer of sixty six you were not born or are not English. Summer of Sixty Six is my take on the events of that summer recounted in verse. It swings between the English team's efforts to win the World Cup on native soil and life as an army kid in Germany defending our football honour against all comers in games that lasted all day.
