As a Scot, I was naturally quite happy with the draw against England in Euro 2021 (yes, I know Croatia knocked them out of the competition yesterday). The BBC commentary on that game provided the text fragments for the following piece of Flarf poetry. For more info on flarf, follow the link in the comments.

Have a good week!

Flower of Scotland

Revived the old rivalries

Rain-soaked Tartan-clad hordes

Race for a place

The old enemies

Feeling the pace

Gave as good as they got


Ignored his pleas

Faded badly after a bright start

Tartan Army

Ran him close

Opening salvo

The spark fires up soon

Smash-and-grab point

Band of players


The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond
