༺ Yarn ༻


my friend had a gig near me
and invited me along
an East European rugby squad
was about to play England
at Twickenham

my mate did standup comedy
they absolutely loved it
they were out from behind
the iron curtain
for the first time in their lives

at one point a deal was done
their vodka for my dope
a super strong charras
you had to handle with care

the following evening
my friend rang me
“look at the results”
our new friends
had set a record
54 - 3

(NB: we both remembered the score as 93-0, but google says otherwise!)
