Bring Me Sunshine!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Smiles replace sighs
at the arrival
of Dennis Wise
and Gus Poyet.
Furrowed brows
on Town fans’ faces
ironed out with the
coming of the new dream team.
No sign of Den’s cheeky grin,
just a steely will to win
in his first interview.
Will hopefully transmit to
players shorn of belief
after too many defeats.
Chirpy Cockney chappie,
enigmatic Uruguayan
to keep fans happy,
ensure we’re not cryin’
into pints of Arkell’s ale.
Desperately not trying
to remember other disasters
like the past masters,
Evans and Ruddock
when everything
went tits up.
Town fans’ desire to
see Wise emulate
the great Lou Macari,
a man still revered,
still cherished, loved, feared
for his fantastic feats
two decades ago.

Notes

Rather like Eric and Little Ern, I hope that the new partnership at Swindon Town will bring me sunshine
