From Martin to Ada

Ada Hegerberg

Referring to this.

You've won the Women's Ballon d'Or
You dribble, tackle, shoot and score
But do you twerk?

You strike a hard and well-aimed ball
Around a wide defensive wall
But do you twerk?

Top scorer in the Champions League
But one thing fills me with intrigue:
Do you twerk?

Off Your Knees

Keep politics out of sport
Black lives may matter
but all that matters here
is the score

Keep politics out of football
because standing up for the national anthem 
is not political
but kneeling for it is

Keep politics off the pitch
Offence and defence 
are matters for the field of play
not for the field of struggle

Borough Till I Die

I was pleased to be invited by Dulwich fan Mishi​ to write a Posh-supporting poem for the forthcoming Dulwich vs #pufc friendly.
So here it is. It's in 4-4-3 formation. ;-)
Up The Posh​!

Cup Final Conundrum

On the occasion of the 2016 FA Cup final between Manchester United and Crystal Palace:​

Who to cheer today at Wembley's meeting?
One club sent us down with flukes and cheating
The other's filthy rich and so elitist
My position? Revolutionary defeatist
