Let The Show Begin: A Poem By Pete Marshall


Let The Show Begin:
A Poem By Pete Marshall

The Cockerels crowed 
and Magpies flew
the Wolves would bay
as Black Cats mewed

And Vllains stole
the Citizens pride
behind the Cottagers
Gunners would strive

The Blues were sung
in Tangerine dreams
the sweets were Red
and Toffees cream

The Trotters growled
the Rovers attacked
the Irons were hot
and the Baggies were back

And Devils roared
whilst Potters played
the Pensioners fought
as Latics slayed….

*****

The English Football Season 2010-11 started last Saturday. The above poem is a tribute to all 20 teams competing this season in the Premiership....how? I will let you decide.

Nice tribute. I didn't recognize a thing, but I'm not much of a sports person, so I got a completely different reading from it.

Ah, football... it's a guy thing perhaps? Hey how's Google treating you? Are the layouts/themes/fonts etc better/worse etc for poetry? (advertising aside)

The EPL is huge in Malaysia. I will place a link to my Main Blog www.ninotazizpurplemusings.blogspot.com when I write about football next!

By the way, Pete - thank you for the best of compliments when you dropped by - you called me a very talented poet!

That will last me a week - at least!

(We writers are incorrigible, aren't we?)

Ignorant were football is concerned - American and English - but the poem and photo are great, Pete. Much pleasure in it ... if not the game! :-)
