Beneath the East Stand

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Within the East Stand’s intemperate tropics,
beneath those apocryphal prawns,
life is measured by flat perspectives.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Managers, akin to former prime ministers
pacing Fife platforms with friendly fire
and oblique warnings for Jeremy Corbyn,

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 make decisions any rules of etiquette
would disallow. In thrall to mystery
satellites, it’s theatrically sound

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 to walk on water supplied by fans,
offering vessels for the waves to no-one.
