BRITISH HOME STORES, BELFAST DOMINOES CHAMPION 1974

When you look at me,
you have no idea
until I reveal the surprise,
for I'm the '74
dominoes champ
right before your eyes.

A dark horse was I,
not given a chance
by the critical and the uncouth,
for I'd never played dominoes
in my life,
and that's the honest truth.

The scene was set
at the Castle Inn
in the city of Belfast,
I conquered all,
won the tankard prize
and the audience was aghast.

From '74 to the present day,
that's my only sporting prize,
but you should never dismiss the dark horse,
like this (unbeaten) champ before your eyes.
