At GKNO1 academy,
the best goalie school in the world,
the noise of the bunch of us clowning,
is often (loudly) heard.
the one we laugh at most,
became a living legend by using his head..
..to make a dent in the post.
We usually banter,
in no way sublime,
about Premiership blunders
that we see as crime.
Our bunch are lacking in Latics,
but still one boy moans
about injury prone Chris Kirkland,
he who has powder for bones!
Tom’s had Kirkland’s curse before,
it’s something he won’t miss,
for when he was injured all the time,
he became known as Chris.
Tom again was first to go,
when we rediscovered this lark.
He sat barefoot with an ingrown toenail,
on the grass in Caedelyn park.
One boy left, before the day was done,
a kid who’s known as Phil.
Officially he had to leave early,
we think the curse took him ill.
If things were bad, they sure got worse,
and I felt rather glum,
when after being lunged at two-footed,
I dislocated my thumb!
I stared at my (very) swollen hand,
and saw to my dismay,
that my thumb was shaking
and pointing the wrong way.
As I knocked the thumb back into place,
using Tom’s dented post,
I’d tell you (if he were dead)
I saw Chris Kirklands ghost.
I’m just glad that nothing’s broken,
since that wouldn’t be much fun.
Once again Chris Kirkland strikes
And on my birthday, what is worse,
than soreness and clicks,
is I can’t hold a remote control
or play Pro Evo 6!
