A sharp eerie whip like crack.
Akin to that of bone breaking
Brought a shocking halt to proceedings
Causing heated paying partisans to cease baying
At one another for a time, silenced by the noise.

Looking down anxiously
On to the playing field. Fierce inner city playing rivals
Glugged on bottles of water
Whilst deciding where they were meeting later for dinner,
During the long hold up in play.

As two clashing titans rose from the turf
Shook hands and gingerly limped back in to position
The referee signalled for the stretcher bearers
To enter the field of play, administer the last rights
To a by now deflated prone circular being and carry it off.

Rising from our seats to proffer a round (sic) of sympathy
We pondered: Chelsea’s David Speedie and “Ammer” Billy Bonds
Both committed and really going for it big time
Something’s gotta give, ain’t it?
On this sad occasion, that poor something was the ball!
