Tis rare you’ll see him dream
Of what might have, could have been?
Fortune up a bulbous nose – into a claret stream.

A comic/lauded icon in our past
Yet…tis on a halcyon field, toe to toe agin Gaddafi

A pivotal – albeit – quite brutal encounter, I was reminded of after watching a couple of World Cup matches recently, where now, like then – despite VAR and its benefits – it still seems a case of absolutely…anything goes on occasion?

Go well, be lucky and keep smiling.
