Exes…

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A few years past
a fairly common question to have been asked
in football quizzes
in which we partook
and were accused as a subsitute for having sex,
was,
‘Can you name the 5 football league teams
whose name’s contain an X?’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Well, ‘Oxford’, ‘Halifax’ and ‘Exeter’ soon went crashing out.
‘Wrexham’ soon to follow, of that there’s little doubt.
And as the curse of the ‘X’ seemingly grew and grew,
I’d be decidedly nervous
if I supported ‘Crewe’.
