2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 In the china bowl Gomes was the customary bull
Touch of an ox whilst missing a hatful
Under the glare pumpkin Metzelder played a complete fake
Not once but thrice a personal rendition of swan lake
The biggest howl reserved for Austria’s duffer
Three big cheers for the Hassel – Hoffer
No goals on the horizon it was time for gaffer love
Hicky and Low off without so much a shove
And so chucking the dummy and climbing out of his pram
A rare incision from the artist Phillip Lahm
Abandoning caution Phil went all out attack
Result, an incredible scorcher by the kingpin Ballack
Now Northeasts Emanuel, the Boro star that is
Had a little moment, opting to add some fizz
Tranquil moment of calm as he set upon to maul
Dr Hannibal Lecter and the matchball
With the co hosts going home, tucked up safe and sound
It’s those Gerries that progress to the next round.
