1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Unsuspecting ‘offender’
receives stern letter from league:
£85 fine
and a 110 day ban.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 ‘Offender’ nonplussed:
he hasn’t played since August;
preferring instead to ply
his trade in London.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Amateur detective on the case;
a budding Sherlock Holmes.
E-mails fizzing fru the ether,
searching out the truth.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Punishment, when it comes, draconian:
whopping fine for guilty club
and book thrown hard at player:
banned ’til Jan 2010.
