CEREAL

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The chant was offensive,
the play was defensive,
when the black winger
shrugged off
the ‘Coco Pops’ jibe,
made a monkey
of the full back,
hit a banana shot
that snapped
crackled
and popped
from his boot,
spooned the brown ball
into the white net,
and turned,
one black hand
raised, to milk
the applause.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The white-hot
red-faced
applause.
