Discarded Lines From Famous Poems

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floated on high o’er vales and hills
When all at once I saw a crowd
Of football hooligans, so I legged it.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 What is this life, if full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare,
Because the stewards have told us to sit down.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs, and blaming it on you
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
Then you’ll make a good manager my son.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Solomon Grundy
Born on a monday
Christened on a tuesday
Supported Sheffield Wednesday.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure dome decree
Where Alph the sacred river ran
Now owned by Man City.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe
All mimsy were the the borogroves
And a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale pet.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The owl and the pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat
They took some honey, and plenty of money
Because football mascots weren’t allowed on the coach.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 My heart aches, and drowsy numbness pains
my sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk
Or emptied some dull opiate to the drains
A dodgy pie and pint at half time what did it.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 How do I love thee? Let me count the ways
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height,
Said Cristiano Ronaldo, when seeing his reflection in his mirror.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 All the worlds a stage,
And all the men and women players
They have their exits and entrances
Until the transfer deadline closes.



As you can see, got to much time on my hands ! Waiting for the season to start. My club have sold yet another of our best players,this time to Celtic.Feeling really angry, and let down again, by the men in suits, taking us fans for mugs. There like politicians, full of you know what !
I was going to do a poem on the whole fiasco at my club, but thought what’s the point, so did this instead, when you’ve been a fan of Cov City as long as I have, I’ve found humour to be the best therapy !
