Euro 2008 Day One (i)

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There’ve been seminars a-plenty
On the best way to count sheep.
Though the medic cognoscenti
Still can’t guarantee you sleep.
There’ve been internet discussions
On the benefits of pills,
Though it’s rumoured that the Russians
Say they promulgate more ills.
Glass of whiskey? Glass of cocoa?
They might only make you sick
And reading ‘bout the Orinoco
Doesn’t always do the trick.
But now scientists are raving
‘Bout a cure for lack of sleep,
There’s no need for misbehaving
And it works out very cheap.
Relief at last! According
To those haggard, restless wrecks.
Just put on the full recording
Of the Swiss against the Czechs.
