two and twenty flak nerds baked in a tie

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This current spat
is more soup kitchen
than Premiership culinary fare –
more about the other ‘red tops’
wanting a piece-a the action
not just drip-feeding dregs

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The next meeting
isn’t likely to feature
soup or pizza, whatever flavour
(with prawn sarnies, undoubtedly, still on the menu)
but will certainly be all about
dressed up frog’s legs

Notes

in the best tradition of nursery rhymes,
which, when you get to the stage in life where you’re reading them out loud and with a mature brain (in my case debatable),
you’ll find they’re horribly non-pc

Relating to the Man Utd v Arsenal Premiership match of 24th October 2004, and the repercussions of that niggly encounter.
