Barassi and Blight



The angle’s tight and Malcolm Blight
believes he’ll make this work,
but even though he slots the goal…

This poem appears in Strange Game in a Strange Land, a volume of short, playful poems about Flower, Daicos, Doull, Blight and co, available from Wilkinson Publishing or direct from the author.
