FA Cup Poems

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Wot? Not more FA Cup poems!
Can’t we focus instead on prose?
Or at the very least not put
in words that are any good?
No fantastic adjectives; exciting similes
that light up the room like smiles;
no abundance of amateurish alliteration;
metaphors that singularly
fail to hit
the back of the net.
And no rhyme,
definitely no rhyme.
Saving my best
work for the ‘league’.

Notes

I’ve decided not to put any effort into any more Football poems about the FA Cup. Remind you of anyone?!
