Ollie Cahill

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ollie Cahill went for a check-up
[From the head down, not the neck up]
As a winger, Ollie thrilled,
Exciting, purposeful and skilled.
Though it happened quite a lot
That the full-back got too hot
And barged poor Ollie into touch
[Which Ollie didn’t like that much.]

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The pretty nurse then pushed and groped,
And very coldly stethoscoped,
And peered with wonder in his ear,
Before she gave him the all clear.
“Did you mind the tests?” she said.
Ollie turned his big, Cork head,
“Tests? You must be joking, nurse!
Sure, I’ve been bodychecked much worse.”
