Metatarsals

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Old hairdryer Ferguson once said
“Wayne’s foot is too painful to stand on”
The size of Ferguson, I’m not surprised,
let’s hope he didn’t stand there too long.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Poor Wayne’s metatarsals,
they’ve been through heck.
But remember brave Bert Trautmann,
dis-regarding his broken neck.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Perse broke his scoring a goal,
a stunner against Man Ure.
Some say players these days are reckless,
others say boot manufacture is poor.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Whatever the case, we had a lesson,
biology, the other day.
I’m asked to name a bone in the foot.
Guess which one I did say?
