I really enjoyed this poem. Wistful and tender.
See in context

Thanks Crispin. Always interesting to see the clubs that are not in the news week after week and they just get on and play good, entertaining football. The Pieman has added a different flavour though! I think he may become a pie-taster for the supermarkets- he is certainly getting the publicity. Keep well, Cheers from Sanderstead.

Nice one Ianthe.
Even though Lincoln , those mischevious Imps, are our (Forrest Green’s) biggest rivals and sitting just above us at the top of the National League, moments like Saturday excite and ignite us all. So pleased for them.
When we played them here at FGR, we were two up with 5 mins to go and they still won 3-2!
Likewise Sutton United who are also in our league. We played them in the 4th Qualifying Round of the FA Cup at their place and lost 1-0 on their ‘plastic’ pitch. What might’ve been eh?

Great poem. My favorite line is the ‘worn down by fame’ much like my favorite artist.
