A Sheltered Life

Do you know that, as a solitary
and happy child of the 1940s,
and a beneficiary of the Welfare State
(free orange-juice and milk and rose-hip syrup,
free medical, ophthalmic and dental treatment
well-removed from abject poverty and vice)
I have never even seen a cockroach -
though in middle age
I was once a host to pubic lice ?
