Post-Christmas Bargains and January Sales

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Like broken toys
Whose batteries failed them
The promised signings
Unwrapped and dross
The cards all shuffled
Pledges taken
The window poised
Speculation rife

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Come all ye faithful
We adore ’em
Yet players gaffers come and go
But not fans whose solemn pledge
Is ‘Take our hearts’
Subbed with the soul

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Who’s been naughty who’s been nice
Players roll like tumbling dice
Fe Fi Fo Fum
Can you smell the blood of a chairman?
Run!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Gossip mongers poison pens
Contracts broken Sell Sell Sell
Yankee dollars Spend Spend Spend
Time to reflect on season’s failings
The Christmas turkeys
Play on still.

Notes

Wonder what the second half will bring?
