NaPoWriMo Day One

Day One
NaPoWriMo 2014

I’m sitting on the old park bench
Watching the international buckshee
There’s a game for free here every night
Tonight it’s Somaliland v Turkey

It’s a big score and it’s not quite half time
Bored I start to read the bench graffiti
Jack Spratt loves Jill June Nineteen Sixty Nine
Fred 4 Freda punctuate it how you will

A mile up the road at Gold Trafford
Uni-ted are playing Bayern Munich
Want to go to the pub? Asks my neighbour
No thanks, I wouldn't cross the street to watch them

This old bench has seen a lot of action…
Clocked enough, going for a Ruby Murray



  1. Of course, that old bench actually used to be in the park... a park... back in the day...
    Nice one Andy!

    1. Thanks Stan, the old bench is actually in Whitworth Park and there were at least three 'internationals' being played there last night.

  2. Just thought... sat on the bench there, Moyes'll probably bring you on at half time...! Got yer boots...? :)

    1. I've got my boots, but I draw the line at wearing a red shirt.
