Smell – 1st August 1983

Wet armpits produce a smelly pong
Armed with Brut 33 to rid the wrong
So I can go onstage to sing another song
But does my Brut 33 last that long?

27th Apr – 2023 – Brut 33 was the cheap deodorant favoured by us poor smelly teenagers but only once we actually realised that we smelt pretty bad a lot of the time. That’s what happened with only bathing once a week. We had school uniforms too and I don’t remember having a change during the week.
In this poem, I am also already imagining myself as a rock star. I’d need to up my game on the word front though!
