Evening jackdaws clatter

And rove the stretching pitch

Picking over the weary turf

Between rust-scarred goalposts

That reach shadows grasping long,

But late for action on the darkening grass.

Assorted along lines inexplicable

Into small swaggering gangs

That call insults cheerfully

As the teenage contenders

Now enlivening the elsewhere.
