I Have a Beef

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 So where do you stop
with this vegan thing?
No meat at the Lawn;
instead we’ll have quorn.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 No welcome extended to
ex pros like Berger and
Venison is deffo
off the menu.
No money raising
summertime BBQ’s;
we daren’t risk putting
even Wanchop on the grill.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And what happens if
the boys draw meaty
teams in the cup?
We can’t play Tottenham,
Oldham, Rotherham
nor Liverpool unless they
change their name to Lentilpool.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And there’s no way
fixtures can be fulfilled
at Kidderminster or Kettering:
the very idea of travelling
to KFC is a non-starter.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Pinning all our hopes on
current Conference North leaders
coming up to the ‘prem’
and hoping that Nuneaton
means precisely what it
says on the tin.

Notes

Tongue in cheek look at life in Gloucestershire after Crispin’s news about Forest Green going vegan.
