    Hi Crispin,

     

    Many thanks for that. I’ve actually changed it back because I feel the more ridiculous it looks, the more Ogden Nash it is! My own personal choice, others may disagree. But I appreciate the thought. Cheers

    Whenever the World Cup comes around, you can bet your bottom dollar that many’ll
    Plump for Brazil in this super-hyped, global quadrennial,
    Supposedly playing their football with an infectious j […]

    Sorry everyone. Away on holidays and not very good at the computer stuff anyway.

    I had thought I was commenting on Verse 2, Lines 3 and 4. The whole poem is done in rhyming couplets – I was merely commenting on […]

    Captain hollered, “Kev!
    Fella’s hurted his leg*
    Need you to take his place, and go in goal”?
    Pulling on the goalies top,
    A hurried sign of the cross
    I ran out with the chaps to face our foe.

    Battered, […]

    A is for Albion. The boys done us proud. Laud ‘em out loud.
    B is for Brexit. No mention, amongst the tension, until of course, Brazil exit early. Spot the surly.
    C is for Charades (see VAR). Replaces the i […]

    We’ve criss-crossed the country
    taken Steppes small and large
    travelled alone or in convoys
    by plane, train or barge

    first intentions were
    that we weren’t to get lost
    but as we familiarised on the jou […]

    Third or fourth
    Does it really matter?
    Should it matter?
    For there is no head-upon-a-platter
    For failure

    Then what of the prize money?
    I’m not being funny
    But there is only 2 million FIFA shekels
    In t […]

    Corner kick in his mind
    Eyeballs the monitor behind
    Before racing back on to the field…
    Vlad appears on the miniature screen
    Snarling, broody like, mean,
    “Right sunbeam this here’s the deal…

    Your […]

    I watched Croatia versus France –
    The Final is a must!
    But all the time kept thinking
    That it could have been us.

    Us out there on that Moscow pitch,
    Us strutting proud our stuff,
    The Trophy giving a […]

    France 4-2 Croatia

    spoiling things again
    VAR the villain here
    on this final night

    never lying down
    oh how brave Croatia fought
    when injustice reigned

    never at their best
    once again Les Bleus […]

    Outplayed France win The World Cup
    I louldly explete…”Griezmann! You no-good…….cheat”
    At his theatrics performed for the first
    Les Bleus second is worse
    Even with VAR, a VAR*
