Day 03 : gloom, not glee

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Day three
More gloom than glee
England draw one all with Sweden

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Four matches
Good in patches

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Argentina 1 Nigeria 0
Sweden 1 England 1
Paraguay 2 South Africa 2
Spain 3 Slovenia 1

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Argies looking strong
Bets as champions, wouldn’t go far wrong
And as for Spain?
They look like they could reign
But as for England, oh my England
In this green and pleasant land
The head gardener has lost the plot
Atop the compost heap, whether turnip or swede
We just cannot seem to breed
Confidence, or the will to win
Why not? Is it a sin?
