Poems of the Week

Cymric Qatarsis

In their opening World Cup game, the first since
1958, the Welsh team led by Gareth Bale managed
to secure a 1-1 draw with the USA in the 81st minute.

A report on performance—G. Bale’s—
In a match west of Doha for males.
First half: not so hot.
Second: penalty spot . . .
And a last-moment screamer for Wales!
