Dear Ruth: I don't follow our club football these days, as I like it the way it was - mostly locals in meaningful competition; however, I think you are referring to the manager of a club that has taken to the field without an Englishman - let alone a Cockney. Here, as a brief interlude from Chants, is my brief poetic response to the present farce:

Poem 98 REREGULATE

One Premier world-eleven v.

Or wage-caps and say half each-club's squad

Alas -- the signs are not auspicious.
Shallow, hackneyed, meretricious,
Butchered rhythms, forms and cases
Feeble hearts with ugly faces
Cheap affairs in tawdry places!
Made in couplets, rhymed for fashion,
Without hint of grace or passion.
Fitful notions, wizened shoots,
Tinny horns with brassy toots,
Heros, dressed in monkey suits.
Protests made by fools as I,
Under God's condemning sky,
Shame the heart left out to dry,
Without caring, without sigh.
I would you sang in poems delicious,
But the signs are not auspicious.

Lame in verse and crippled timing,
Hard to read, and barely rhyming,
Glued to intellectual fashion,
Keep your calm, and give me passion.
You may choose a world of ice;
I think fire's much more nice.
Limping structures void of feeling
Leave the mind asleep and keeling.
Take, oh, take Alf Ramsey's part,
Brains and toenails, dry and stark,
Leave me just the beating heart.

Hey, I'm inspired by walkaboutsverse's wonderful poems. It has made me realise that anyone can right poetry - even me!! So, I thought I'd have a go. I'm going to use this thread to publish a 19,876,8076 line effort of mine entitled PLEASE GO AWAY THIS THREAD IS RIDICULOUS - SOME THOUGHTS. Its fairly freeform, and I'm going to add a few lines every few days for the infinite future. Maybe check out my free website or some such jazz.
