Remember me?
The story behind the poem

Ah...those long ago school days when my only concerns were my teenage spots, my long hair (before the onset of male pattern baldness), football and girls. The main object of my pubescent desires back then was a lovely young thing who sat in another class. I saw her mainly at morning assembly when the whole school gathered, or at lunch time or in the playground. She was largely indifferent to me (maybe the spots put her off) but nonetheless she remained the focus of my affections throughout my childhood days. Does she ever think about me?..... Alas I think not.
