The number ten put down the ball,
A yard outside the box.
The referee paced out the wall,
As he pulled up his socks.
But as he stood there, quite inert,
The rain came lashing down,
And ran the dye out of his shirt,
Which changed from red to brown.
The dye then dripped onto the ball
With colourful effect.
The ref then called to one and all,
“This free-kick is dye-wrecked.”
