>Let The Show Begin: A Poem By Pete Marshall


Let The Show Begin:
A Poem By Pete Marshall
The Cockerels crowed 
and Magpies flew
the Wolves would bay
as Black Cats mewed
And Vllains stole
the Citizens pride
behind the Cottagers
Gunners would strive
The Blues were sung
in Tangerine dreams
the sweets were Red
and Toffees cream
The Trotters growled
the Rovers attacked
the Irons were hot
and the Baggies were back
And Devils roared
whilst Potters played
the Pensioners fought
as Latics slayed….
The English Football Season 2010-11 started last Saturday. The above poem is a tribute to all 20 teams competing this season in the Premiership….how? I will let you decide.
