Euro 2012 Day 10 Match 2

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Portugal 2 Netherlands 1

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Dutch are gone
amid much sobbin’.
Some players shone –
alas, not Robben.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Dutch are beat
amid controversy
but do not fret
about van Persie.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Dutch fly home,
van Bommel’s sighing.
The aerodrome
rings out with crying.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Dutch are gone.
Could shots go wider?
Some blame lies on
one Wesley Sneijder.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 How bad the Dutch?
How dim their star?
They didn’t get much
from Huntelaar.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The Dutch are out
with little heart
but there’s no doubt
‘bout van der Vaart.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The Dutch fall short –
no orange conga.
Most feel they ought
to have stayed longer.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 They’re rotten eggs.
They’re mildewed wine.
The question begs –
will Bert resign?
