Had met its match

But I had to scratch

This game of rugger

I’m a mighty glugger!

Twickenham is where I did all my schooling

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 It’s with fellow football poets
Where my purple prose is pooling!

And yes, you probably can swap ‘r’ for ‘ling’ from the last word – or even drop ‘ling’ altogether!

With my accent – and the fact that Ireland beat England at Twickenham on St Patrick’s weekend, the locals here think they can get a great rise out of me – but as you can see – they’re picking on the wrong rodent!
