"Thanks to that embryonic Bruce Lee
I’m a shadow of the person that I used to be
I can’t go back to Salford
the cops have got me marked
Enter the Dragon
Exit Johnny Clarke"

Kung Fu International 1978.

Legend indeed.

That's about the only poem of his I can still remember lines from:

"I pleaded for mercy
I wriggled on the ground
he kicked me in the balls
and said something profound..."

And how many people can get away with wearing red chelsea boots and still be cool?

"A black belt karate cop opened up the door
demanding information about the stiff on the floor
he looked like an extra from Yang Shang Po
he said “What’s all this then
ah so, ah so, ah so.”
he wore a bamboo mask
he was gen’ned on zen
He finished his devotions and he beat me up again"

More Chickentown than Choppertown.
