Euro 2008 Day Five ii

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Switzerland 1 Turkey 2

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 On a night when the gods vented fury on high
The Swiss and the Turks went to war.
Beneath the most glowering and sinister sky
They battled like two years before.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 This time ‘twas the Turks who came home safe and dry
And pulled down the stage trap-door lever.
The Swiss are now gone but does someone know why
They played the match on Lake Geneva?



Naturally my team – the Swiss – were the first to be knocked out.
