Old Lady’s in free fall*
Bourse could well crash*
Dow’s dropped a bundle
Nikkei’s been slashed.
Whining chapped lips
No longer kiss shirts
As grim reality clicks
They set agents to work.
Crocodile tears at finale
Con fans who had travelled for miles
As out of date monickered team garb
Is proffered like sweets to a child.
On the trek back the fearless were counted
That you’d want by your side in a trench
By time the first team squad had gone round
You came up with three, good reasons for feeling depressed.
Loyal fans save their hard earned
For next seasons brief
Whilst the sides that dropped this term
Cast deadwood adrift.
Inflation free contracts
At thousands a week
Are okay if you bounce back
To The Premier League.
As a depressed transfer market
Starts bottoming out
Will the parasites stay put or scarper?
Rumour mills are busy, churning answers out now.
