‘Owls of Despair and Birds of Pray

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Relegation dog fight
If you read the pundits words
But when I studied the fixtures
It was just a load of birds
Last week we threw points away
Up against the Eagles
It ended in a three-all draw
Our defence should be illegal
Tonight the Toon are in town
Another avian delight
Magpies only go for treasures
So we should be all right
Feathered friends are all around
Skin and bone, not meaty
I’ll have Birds Custard at half-time
‘Cos the only Pies are Tweety

Notes

Suffering succotash. And we are suffering. The relegation sword is
hovering. We’ve been below that green line on Ceefax for ages now.
We’re not in the Premiership, we’re in the Bottom Three. Tense, nervous crowd? Take three points.
