Postcard from Vancouver

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There was no shirt of Beckham,
And no Zinedine Zidane,
And no quaint named shirt of Totti,
Who’s apparently a man.


Saw a kickabout in England Bay, yesterday; a refreshing lack of identification with other peoples’ personalities. The only national shirt I could see was from Iran. There’s over a hundred languages spoken here so I’m told.
