Jesus On Jarrom Street


three pints happy
we leave The Font
on Gateway Street

head towards
The Sir Robert Peel
and turn right

against red bricks
behind a black spiked fence
Jesus hangs

stadium bound
fans genuflect and
ask for a win

Paul Conneally

The photograph is St Andrew’s Church, Jarrom Street, Leicester. The church was designed by the architect Sir George Gilbert Scott who also designed London’s St Pancras Station.
