Nae more Turnips v Swedes that’s fae sure
And yon Southgate in his smart waistcoat
Put that ghost of ’96 to sleep
A lesson in patience resilience indeed
But most of all
When meeting disaster with triumph
Perhaps this is the still the English way
Amidst the hullabuloo
Quietly doing the right thing.

Notes

A lovely lesson from Gareth Southgate in using patience resilience and determination to deal with failure on the road to success.
