anyone for cricket?

~

anyone for cricket by 16 mid-on-inside-off-edge-leg lines




anyone for cricket?

whites & sticky wickets

the leg-a-rubbing insects

singing in the thicket


please bowl us a googly

as you won't confuse me

if the umpire signals out

i'll flash 'em a moony


agricultural ducks

lewis method dumb fucks

fruit salad & furniture

on the boundary - bad luck


topspin twenty20

breathless hushes testy

tea in the pavilion

sandwiches aplenty

...














( author notes )

this poem contains a few cricketing terms

& a little nod to henry newbolt
