It’s a generational thing

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Yet have I to acquaint myself, with Spotify…
An absurdity to those
Who know only of Conte and Kante,
Morata and Hazard

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Whereas I
I hark back
To the days of Kunta Kinte,
Osgood, Cooke,
Bonetti, Tambling
Just one of the reasons
Why I have no truck with shirts
Supporting gambling

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Bugbears have I many…
“Curmudgeon” could grace my back
Yet I don’t take delight
Every time a sucker gets the sack

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Spot if I
Anyone ever connected with my great team
I follow the link
To see howso-endeth, their cosmic dream

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Apprentices of yesteryear
Loanees of today
Grounsdmen, medics, stewards
Or those yet to play….

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Whereas my kith and kin
Careth not a jot
Unless someone is front and centre,
Of social media renown,
And then they only wish
For a startling comedown



My kids were disgusted that I didn’t know how to use Spotify when wanting to know the name of a song playing away on the radio.
