Euro 2012 II : www dot the Poles

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 the proudest boast
of this eclectic corner
of the world wide waffleweb
is that we have pithy poems peddled
from every continent on the planet
except
(for the pedantic Pats)
the un-colonised polar caps

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 so from humble beginnings
in a shaded nook
of a popular pub
we’re now the hub
of purple prose for the proletariat;

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 from Stroud to the Serengeti
from Cleethorpes to Cairo
from Raith to Rotorua;

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 from Southampton to Sao Paulo
from Belfast to Belize
from Chester to Chukotka;

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 from Whitby to Wagga Wagga
from Dingwall to Douala
from York to Yukon;

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 from Durham to Darwin
from Sheffield to Shanghai
from Jarrow to Jakarta;

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 from Louisburgh to Lhasa
from Limerick to Lima
from Newquay to Niigata;

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 from Pwllheli to Philly
from Plymouth to Pittsburgh
but sadly
Arsenal and Aston
have yet to be twinned
with Arctic and the Antartica

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 but rumour has it
there’s a new show in town
which might just inspire
pugnacious poems from the Poles
(but no polar bears – or penguins)

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 so as we glide through Gdansk
or potter through Poznan
or crack on in Krakow
or simply sample chicken in Kyiv
let’s
polish and hone
before we …
donate ditties from Donetsk

Notes

Looking forward to some great matches in Euro 2012
