Quite Different View’s, From The Underground.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Underground was heaving
Post match mourning rife
A carriage full of grieving fans
Held a wake for Rome less night

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 “Four penalties we should have had”
Moaned angry dad to kids
“That referee stabbed us in the back,
It woz nuffink but a swiz”.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A placid gent across the train
Tut tut’s and reads his book
“I ‘ve just seen the game on TV, and there’s no way
Those penalty shouts were good”.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Angry dad looks fit to burst
“No way, I can’t agree
I was there and at the game
I still blame the referee”.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Tut tut man sighs deeply
“I’m sorry but you’re wrong
Four penalty calls and not one given
Oh dear, sing some other song”.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Angry dad goes radio rental
His kids looks quite perturbed
As tut tut man reprehensible
Claims have suddenly un-nerved them.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 “With a view like that of the nailed on facts
It seems quite clear to me
There’s just one job, you could do by God
That’s as a referee”.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 “It’s funny you should mention that”
Tut tut man smiles smugly
“I am indeed a referee and that is fact
But in a civilized game called rugby”.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 What followed? Not sure I can tell
Except suffice to say the train
Stopped at the next station where mayhem
Was on a par with the end of the game.



I’ve written this poem from an eye witness acount given to me, this morning (Saturday) by my daughter who was fortunate enough to be at the classic the other night and was travelling home on the tube with the main players in the poem.

Suffice to say the verbal exchanges have been changed some what in order to get the poem published here, but any die-hards will get the drift of what I’m getting at, I’m sure.
