Give us a P

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Like a badge of honour
against our name,
the P shines brightly for
all and sundry to see
as we look down from
our lofty perch, lord of
all we survey.
In football parlance P is
a good letter because it
stands for Promotion.
By contrast R is a letter
of doom, taboo because it
signifies Relegation and
ooh hoo relegation’s
not what you need.
‘Give us a P, Paolo,’
we pleaded when the
Italian maestro arrived.
He promised us a P
and fair play to him:
he has delivered.
Now we can celebrate
with a P party.

Notes

We are the Swindon, we’re top of the league. Promotion is confirmed; all I want to see now is a C against our name.
