A poem and comments on the North London gap in class



It deserves a post on it's own, a spot of poetry from the quality camp in North London, the navy blue camp of Tottenham Hotspur, the kings of North London.

Let us et al end this debate
Where each side doth repudiate
This tablet below, from worthy Mail showeth the proof
Tis clear the Cannon no longer sounds it’s roar
A pretentious past that leadeth to the exit door!
And in it’s place the Cockerel stands aloof
From whence it’s perch on mighty Whyte Harte Lane
It doth crow it’s mighty refrain
And, with it’s gilded spurs it doth crush
Yet one more Frenchman into the dust.
Our wordsmith is Hibberni and his musings can be found in the comments section of Tottenham the class club of North London

Regular reader Adrian Bell (MVP) likens the two clubs to trains.

So, we're now at a point where two trains are heading off in opposite directions. Like a crossover just outside the station their train is going down slowly having just left the platform, but building momentum. Ours is the InterCity that wasn't stopping and is already at speed. Stand clear of the platform.

He went on to underline his point and assist the troubled Gonner (no that isn't a spelling error) understand the plain truth.

The nonsense about trains and stations is something called metaphors. It's used in language to help people to understand something that they otherwise may struggle with. There are strong signs that the Gonners have great difficulty understanding these concepts, going by many of the comments that have been posted on the subject thus far. Hence the use of metaphors.

The other issue, of Spurs fans crowing at every opportunity, reflects another concept you may not be familiar with, bearing in mind that the last 20 years have been filled with Arse fans crowing every year - St Totteringham's Day is a clear example of this. That concept is one you may have trouble with too so I'll spell it for you :
H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-S-Y.

Thank you for providing such a perfect example. It's so much easier for people to understand with an example available.

I have to agree with Neil M, I too have found St. Tottingham's Day very childish, games you do in a school playground, hardly something for grown adults.

And it was very thoughtful of us not to lower the tone of our farewell party by inviting Sol Campbell.

  1. I thought I recognised Hibberni's poem. I was impressed at the time I recall.

    More than gratified to see an excerpt of my offering in the main blog Clive. Thank you.
