18 Leave a comment on verse 18 0 let’s introduce a poetry break the tannoy will do fine

.Inspired by the ‘sensibly-aware’ ref during the Wycombe Wanders 1 Chelsea 5 pre-season friendly..Played in heat approching 90 degrees. (You remember… when we were all moaning how hot it was!)
“Midway through the first-half when the ball went out of play referee Paul Taylor stopped play for a water break. Have you ever seen that before? How sensible!”
Taken from the Chelsea FC web-site..
How cool would it be then to have a poetry break too? .We all need to reflect a little quietly.Just stop the game..all sit quietly and listen..or heckle or roar at the punchline or boo if crap..

Calm down, calm down, it’s just an option as Eddie Izzard would say…
we can go that way if we want…
