Rumour-mill.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Two tickets, a drink and the tube
A programme and something to chew
Won’t give you much change
From a “long un” I’d say*
A lot of dough for just one afternoon?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Wow! Hold that back page for a mo
There’s rumor or so I’ve been told?
That a club in West London
Have been doing their sums
and a right blinding deals good to go…

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So…can this West London rumor be true
“Twenty Five Quid For Two Coming Soon”
Will read as “Twenty five quid for an adult and kid
To watch a match at The Bridge”
Sounds like the cow has jumped over the moon.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Seems this Roman, a right lovely bloke,
(I’ve yet to meet him so I wouldn’t know)
Is contemplating – get this- that for twenty five quid
A grown up and a kid
Get two seats at a Stamford Bridge show.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 “Twenty Five Quid For Two Coming Soon”
What a fantastic bit of great news?
For a (so called) family sport
Which many can’t simply afford
and where reality/normality looks like a fool.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Dear Mr Abramovich
(Whom it’s rumored is worth a few quid)
“Twenty five quid for an adult and kid
To watch a match at The Bridge?”
What a generous gesture and a wonderful slogan that is?
If the rumor simply started by me,
Has any foundation and is to be believed?

Notes

* Slang for £100. Of course none of the above is true is it? It’s all hearsay, simply because I’m saying it here! I’ve made the slogan in the poem based on fifteen quid for a head for a big un, and a tenner a head for little un. Obviously for a mum or a dad with a few quids – or – sorry kids in tow. It’s a lot more expensive and needs to be looked at big time. Best beware of China I say. Yeah but it’s long way to go to watch a home game innit?

Stay well, be lucky and keep smiling.

Peace.

Kev.
