An Unmitigated Disaster

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 An unmitigated disaster!
Clinton’s got his knee in plaster.
Centre forwards need both knees
To face the fearsome Faroese.
A single knee, tough strong and fit,
Will faze them not a little bit,
For what unnerves the Faroese
Are centre forwards with both knees.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 One team they played, quite recently,
Did play a forward with one knee.
He wasn’t in the game at all,
Hobbling round to get the ball.
The Faroese found it amusing,
Though at one stage they were losing,
But they fought back and won the game
O’er opponents both quite fit and lame.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So Brian Kerr has got it right
Not playing Clinton M. tonight.
To send our hero out to play
Would not help make his knee okay,
And Long John Clinton wouldn’t fare
Too well, if he was thrust in there
To face the fearsome Faroese
Without his complement of knees.
