Football Shaped – by Leo Hoenig.

Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

 

Good Day to you all, and Welcome to my blogs.

The objective of these pages is to give me an easy way to present some of my writings and photographs. It is mainly about travel and football – the voyages of a groundhopper, or if you prefer, the rambings of a sad man who should never be let out of his anorak!

 Meanwhile to welcome all friends to this world, the opening photograph is the entrance to the Stadion der Freundshaft – Friendship Stadium, which is in Frankfurt an der Oder, on the German-Polish border

For anyone who does not know, the title “Football Shaped” comes from the track   “Senses Working Overtime”, from XTC’s 1982 Album “English Settlement”.

And All the World is Football Shaped

Its Just for me to Kick in Space

And I can See, Hear, Smell, Touch, Taste

And I’ve got One, Two, Three, Four, Five…

Senses Working Overtime

Trying to take this all in,

I’ve got One, Two, Three, Four, Five…

Senses Working Overtime

Trying to taste the difference ‘tween the lemons and limes

Pain and Pleasure

…and the church bells softly chime…
