Only the Bony

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The news filtered from the radio
Rooney has bust his foot – oh no!
Serious injury, no time to recover
Our hero the Roon, there can be no other
As we fret upon his broken metatarsal
King Wayne rests with oxygen in his castle
Replacing Sven turned into a farce
Replacing Wayne? – hopes seem sparse
More chance of finding a low cost plumber
Less chance of a World Cup win this summer

Notes

It is a loss to the tournament overall and a real blow to Rooney himself but we do have other good players and there’s plenty of time for the team to work on Plans B-Z. I’m looking forward to the World Cup so much that I’m thinking of splashing out £1.49 on some St George
flag-style bunting – or is that overdoing it?
