Watch in anticipation,
As the results
Of the afternoon’s exertions
Dance across the screen.

Watch in agitation,
As their team
Display prowess, or not,
Amongst the dancing numbers.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Armchair fans
Watch with excitement
As their team
Climbs above
The dancing chorus.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Armchair fans
Watch in despair,
As their team
Falls prey
To the chorus.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Armchair fans
Watch,
As like a pavane,
The dance reaches its climax,
and ends.
