British Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy is Waiting for David Beckham's Boots

September 30, 2011

The BBC reports that British Poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy is waiting for a pair of football boots promised to her by British soccer star, David Beckham. Carol Ann Duffy wrote a poem, called "Achilles," about how an injured foot kept Beckham from playing in England's 2010 World Cup campaign.

David Beckham asked the poet laureate for a copy of the poem so she promised to send him one in exchange for his boots. Carol Ann Duffy sent a handwritten copy of the poem to Beckham, but she told BBC Radio 4's Front Row, "He's got the bloody poem, I haven't got the boots."

She has been waiting for the boots for nearly six months. Beckham needs to deliver his boots ASAP.
