One in Ten

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 One in ten and fading fast
Victories, all in the past
As Vera said, we’ll win again
Don’t know where, don’t know when

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 So if we take the lead
We totally recede
We sit back and defend
Afraid that we’ll distend

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Without fail we concede
No more shall we lead
Supporters groan and frown,
Players’ heads go down

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And if we are consigned
To cruelly go behind
We all sit there disgusted
The game is done and dusted

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We’re fragile and frail
Leaderless, we fail
Facing the unknown
Sinking like a stone



This poem was refused by the programme editor as he refuses to print anything critical of the players or staff.
We have one win in the last ten matches, what else is there to write about?
