Saturday's Game


They came from all directions,
Matchstick men and women in
Matchstick long overcoats walking
In the rain towards the gates of the
Liberty Stadium.

They walked stooped heading one
Way, to the main gate; hands in
Pockets to watch the Swans play
Arsenal who travelled along the M4
By coach.

Cars blocked every street and every
Home for miles around the area
Upsetting residents who could not
Park their own cars outside their
Own homes.A typical Saturday.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
