green fingers : stemming the tide of tortuous tat

welcome to the proliferation of new poets submitting to this site

they’re springing up everywhere
this growing band of football poets
from flower power, to budding youth
from the withering, to the know wits

like pigs in muck
quills playfully toil
nurturing such special words
shooting up through the soil

by taking an axe to the axioms
and clipping at the clichés
let’s hope we can cut out
all the ‘end of the days’

yet all the while
we’re debunking modern isms
glorifying this sport of ours
with such bounteous rhythms

so let coaches cultivate
the life blood of the game
whilst we bards, happily prune away
the posturing of fame!
