eat, drink football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 football kits
are becoming ever more fancy;
soon enough
with all their new pipings
we could see them imbued
and flavoured
with tasty trimmings;
a lemon twist
an orange tang
a lime groove
a kiwi kiss
a melon and orange mélange
a citrus coating
a banana bender
a raspberry ripple
a blackcurrant wave
a strawberry splurge;
you can bet your bottom dollar*
that the price of them
will still be a scourge
upon our pockets

any more suggestions?

* will the phrase ‘bottom dollar’ soon become ‘posteuro’?
