Letter to Santa

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Dear Santa

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Please, please, please
Read this letter,
From a sad
Middle aged bloke
Who’s also a Muslim.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I know at this age
I should be suffering from mid-life crisis
Dying my hair, green
Buying a Harley Davidson or
Dreaming of sharing a Paradise Island
Inhabited by buxom lasses,
Instead of pulling my hair out
After Boro’s gutless performance.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Please, please, please
Read this letter,
In the season of goodwill
Written by a Muslim
On behalf of all suffering souls
Who are Middlesbrough F.C. supporters.
All I ask is:
A brave heart
Big and strong
Who can make the penalty box
His domain.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Couple of war horses,
Full backs
Who relish the battle
And allow no-one to pass.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 At least one midfielder
Who’s not faint–hearted
Or glass-legged
Has the fire in his heart
And vision to conquer.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 A striker, maybe two
Prolific, greedy
Like a fox in the box
Or a big power house
Who frightens the life
Out of defenders and goalkeepers.
Please, please, please
Help dear Santa
I can not see
How else Boro are going to
Win a match.
