Hit the Postie

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A postman joined our team and we
Felt things were getting better.
The manager’s instructions, he
Would follow to the letter.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He’d watch the post at corner kicks,
Like any good defender,
Addressing threats between the sticks,
Returning balls to sender.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The records for our league were smashed,
And all required revamping,
But he was most severely lashed,
When ordered off for stamping.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Eventually the goals dried up,
Just like a shallow river,
And in the third round of the Cup,
He failed to deliver.
