Poor Poor Ashley Cole

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Oh please pray for the soul
Of poor, poor Ashley Cole,
Whose Arsenal career seemed bleak.
Forced, by his admittance,
To work for a pittance
Of fifty five thousand a week.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 This honest young chap
In the poverty trap,
Could not be expected to cope
On such meagre earnings.
No wonder he’d yearnings
To bolster his financial scope.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 With Abramovich giving,
He now earns a living
With little professional disparity.
No longer the onus is
On his win bonuses-
Now he survives without charity.

Notes

Nice to see the lad being paid more realistic wages…
