John Lambie (Partick Thistle Fc)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The scent of the white owl cigar
Pervades the Firhill dugout
Of a different time and place
No fire without smoke

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 His name resolutely hewn
From the same immortal rock as
Shankly Busby Stein, football mavericks
And his words and deeds like theirs, mythological

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Jags’ own
One John Lambie, aye, only one.
