My Big Fat Greek Limericks

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There once was a player called Dabitas,
Who played with such serious gravitas,
But now he displays
(Every time that he plays)
The same joie-de-vivre a rabbit ‘as.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Greek centre back they call Dellas,
Had what was described as a swell ass.
Generating some friction,
He said with clear diction,
“The truth is you’re all only jellas.”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 His partner, the powerful Kapsis,
Was prone to unfortunate lapses.
The doctor said, “Here!
Get your mind into gear,
Before the whole back four collapses.”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 At a function, the blonde Charisteas
Was asked to orate from the dais.
But he shyly demurred,
Saying “Seen and not heard
Is what one expects from Greek players.”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The strange and demure Karagounis
Says he knows where the man in the moon is.
He claims that his rocket
Is stuck in a pocket
Of land on the outskirts of Tunis.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Stelios Giannakopolus
Surveyed the great Lisbon metropolis.
“It’s like Athens, “ he said,
With a shake of his head,
“And it’s possibly equally populous.”

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The manager, Otto Rehhagel,
Strolled out on the banks of the Dargle,
But the damp air did make
His Teutonic throat ache,
So he stopped by a pub for some gargle.
