To boo off Eboue
Showed a complete lack of class
At the home of the Arse

What the poor chap needed
Was love and affection
Not the jeers from the tiers
Fired in his direction

Very disturbed to see Emmanual Eboue booed off by his own fans.
I don’t get it.
Yes – he definitely had a ‘mare, but the booing was never going to help him.
He’s been out injured for 5 weeks, so obviously was a little rusty.

Many thanks for that. I’ve actually changed it back because I feel the more ridiculous it looks, the more Ogden Nash it is! My own personal choice, others may disagree. But I appreciate the thought. Cheers

Sorry everyone. Away on holidays and not very good at the computer stuff anyway.
I had thought I was commenting on Verse 2, Lines 3 and 4. The whole poem is done in rhyming couplets – I was merely commenting on the fact that the rhyme there / disappeared sticks out like a sore thumb!!
Nothing to do with black and white!
