There’s an advertising placard
at Stockport County’s football ground
that says POTATOES! in big bold letters.
A man has his top off behind the sign
and is encouraging the home fans to squat
to their knees and slowly rise and slowly rise
and slowly rise and WEEEEEEEEEEEEEY!!!!
they jump to the sky with their arms up.
POTATOES! sits underneath their flying feet
and I’ll look at anything to ignore the scoreline.
