You might remember the fun we had adapting Book titles in football pun fashion, prompted at the time by The Big Read series on BBC2?
(see the poem entitled – The Big Read : fun with puns,
under poet : Team Effort)
This time I propose the following : a graffiti wall – read the list below and you’ll get the gist.
Any further suggestions can be marked : ‘Attn Clik’ and sent to : email@example.com
Our thanks to Webmeister Dave who has done some work in the background, to enable this one e-mail address to reach ALL the Football Poets editors.
Dave is also hoping (at some point in the future), to re-activate the guestbook in Forum format. More details will follow.

You might well say :
Is it poetry
Or is it just pandering
To a meandering
mouse / muse
The whole exercise probably prompted from having to hammer home a vocal drill for one of my young offspring :
“This, that, these and those, this is the way the ‘th’ goes”.
