Eight draws


Iíve cleared the kitchen table,
brushed off a weeks worth of crumbs,
found a yellow bic biro,
smoothed out my old coupons

Crystal Place, Accrington Stanley
Tottenham Hotspur, Sheffield Wednesday
Norwich City, Derby County
draw? draw ?draw?

Perm eight from ten,
nothing surer,
one and six postal order,
rush to post
thank god its in there,
... before 12 am.

No more,
two up two down,
bag of coal half a crown,
couple of bob for the bookies runner,
Sevy Park, freezing summer.
John Moores will make me rich
and Iím going to,
spend, spend, spend!
