1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Euro 2008 – Day 4 – Fight analogy

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Ding, ding
End of Round One
Already so many aching joints
And it’s the heavyweights ahead on points
Does anyone else have a puncher’s chance?
Perhaps ex-Champs France?
Italy will have to haul themselves off the canvas
But I fear they won’t make the count;
And no matter how many attacks they may mount –
The flyweights haven’t a prayer

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 From the viewpoint of my settee’d lair
If you allow me to mix my analogies
(for which I proffer pre-apologies)
I accept that I may be panned
But it’s hard to see beyond
The tag team of SPorGerland

Than H2o in Lake Geneva
And so it proved to favour
Any host busy as a beaver

But the groundsmen’s half time forking

But what of the downfallen?
A clanger by Cech
Leaves his country folk bawlin’

24 Leave a comment on verse 24 0 Petr holds his hands up
And takes full responsibility –
We’re left wondering if all the facial knocks
Has affected his bravery and agility

They went missing too
And their lack of protection
Was a factor in the Turkish coup
