Mogga Will Not Smile – Villanelle

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Mogga is not a song and dance man,
He’ll quietly endeavor to stamp his mark,
Mogga does not smile.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Team that was once shambles,
Is transformed into one of the best in Championship but
Mogga is not a song and dance man.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 At Cardiff City Stadium, Boro made
The Welshmen sing the blues but
Mogga did not smile.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Wages bill needs to slashed, summer clear out a must
New players to forge into a team but the gaffers not fazed,
Because Mogga is not a song and dance man.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Next season Boro lead from match one,
Win promotion in style,
But will not smile.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Even if Boro qualified for Europe
Won the champion, the double or treble
Mogga is not a song and dance man.
And will not smile.

Notes

Written after Boro’s demolition of Cardiff City (2.5.2011), watching live on telly, I never saw the Boro manager smile.
