Injured Pride

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Haemothorax
Aching back
Strained groin
Septic tattoo loin
Bruised toe
Fractured rib woe
Cruciate ligament horror
Won’t mend by tomorrow
They said it’s concussion
Caused by too much Black Russian
Stomach virus
Provided by Curries ‘r’ us
Shin splints
Skin flints
Not so flash
A vivid rash
Now I’ve finished what I had to say
You’ll know why your new signings not playing today

Notes

Why is it when a player gets hit in the face with the ball we all go “ooohh” in sympathy and when he gets it in the Y-fronts we all laugh?
