Ipswich Nil: Norwich Won

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Relief:
That’s what it was
the onion bag bulged
and the lump in my throat
disappeared
washed down with three points of victory
‘winning isn’t everything
it’s the only thing’

Notes

The above ‘three points of victory’ reminds me of the time when I asked a fellow supporter what three points meant to him.
‘A hangover, usually’ he said.
I give thanks for my Norfolk accent.
