Saturday Afternoons Alright For Football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Shopping, channel hopping
Hoovering, manoeuvering
the car out of the drive
Taking five
Decorating, reinstating your debts
Placing your bets
Cutting the lawn, earning your corn
Computer games, barbeque flames
Drinking, thinking, television blinking
Jogging, blogging, flogging your treasure at car boot sales
Chasing your tail when all else fails
Three p m
What would we do then
If there was no game
When Saturday came

Notes

Written ironically. It’s only us old ‘uns who remember when kick off
meant 3pm, Saturday.
