0260 You Couldn'T Make It Up If You Tried..

Poem By Michael Shepherd

Your box of brand-new football boots
this European season, where the diktat from Brussels sprouts hurhur,
will bear the helpful message
'Average contents: two'...

but when you've picked yourself off the floor
consider this: three boots in a box (great film title)
would be a box with not much inside left geddit hurhur;

but if you tried to sue the makers who only packed one
on that cautionary statement, you wouldn't
have a leg to stand on.

You who in Your form of the Chapungu,
