2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I don’t know his middle name
but I do hope it’s derrick
so that Roy may hoist
our hopes – and the performance of his chargehands –
that his crane may be the winch
to get us up
and ready for …
dissonance in Donetsk

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 You crane, we crane, they all crane –
their necks
to see if we –
post Becks
can shoot
and score
so that we
can roar
and qualify
at the expense of our hosts

will it be
cheery toasts
or will we be
crying into our beer?
will we engage
laughing gear
or
lachrymonious lips?
will it be
victorious gulps
or simpering sips?
will our glasses be half full
or full of slops?
