Up there with the best of them (not)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I like to copy :
Pele, Yeats
Heaney and Hunter
But try as I might
I’m still an ordinary punter

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 AA Gill and Gordon Hill –
Rhyming I can do
But to better Cruyff or Proust?
I’m not even fit to tie a shoe

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Haiku, Sonnet, Cinquain, Ode –
I try so many forms
But when it comes to the Shakepeare stakes (Craig OR Bill)
It’s not for me the audience warms



Craig Shakespeare – ex pro with Swindon
