Was called up to the case.
He had to try and find out if
Match-fixing did take place.

He checked their bank accounts,
Looking for a single clue
Upon which he could pounce.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The managers were innocent
Or so they stoutly claimed.
Directors brought solicitors,
In case they were defamed.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Chief Inspector Mulligan
Tried every trick he knew,
And the more that he was stymied, well,
The more suspicions grew.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 He bit the bone and chewed the fat
And spat out all the gristle,
And lo! he was rewarded when
The referee blew the whistle.
