notes from a small vicar
from a parish
in Liverpool, UK
Sunday, August 03, 2003Sheer Bloody Poetry When Saturday Comes, entitled (if you'll excuse the language) Poetry, Sheer Bloody Poetry!, which was based on the premise that some of our literary greats owed their inspiration to footer. Remember... I was at university studying English at the time, that's my excuse. One bit of the article was even extracted by the Guardian's soccer diarist. It had a Lakeland connection...
That floats on high o'er hills and vales
When all at once I saw a crowd,
Ten thousand very rowdy males,
Outside the pubs, all round the place,
Singing, "Workington are bloody ace!"
