A short apocryphal auto-biography

I was told I was found under a stone on Blackpool beach. Actually I was one of ten siblings with two fathers and three mothers. Memories of us all living in a field for a while and long summers by the sea. Now my home is Brixton, South London. Though sometimes I wish Brixton was beside the sea … it may be one day.
