Last night I supported, live on stage to a packed house, my all time icon poet and John Cooper Clarke right here in Stroud..still matchstick thin like a Lowry figure with that Robert Smith early Dylan hairstyle, he kindly allowed me to totally pinch and change his classic haiku for the sake of our football-less country..later we had a great time talking about the good old days when we used to get peed on and soaking wet on the uncovered terraces..often in fear of our lives at games..them were t’ days..when real men and real fans worked down pits, and players never got to train with a ball and players wore the shirt with pride for people in tweed suits like Sir Alf ..allegedly..

to convey one’s mood
in seventeen syllables
is very diffic
