Corner Flag, oh Corner Flag

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Corner Flag, oh Corner Flag,
Please do not let your spirits sag,
Though players bend you out the way
To try and keep the ball in play.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Corner flag, thy fate is sealed
In that far corner of the field,
Sent to physically define
The full extent of that goal line.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Corner flag, what is thy goal?
You’re more than just a pretty pole.
What dost thou aspire to most?
To be a crossbar or a post?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Corner flag, thy slender shape
Shows off thy fine three-pointed drape.
I hope I never get to snag
My shorts on thee, oh Corner Flag.
