This is the fifth revision of this poem. The original version was deemed too stinging and was removed from being published on this website. The next 3 revisions were even more critical and really since this a family show, they will never see the light of day. The fifth and, hopefully, final version of this poem is above. Very tame in my opinion and not the original message I was trying to convey. The original related to the 2nd placed team, in the money list, with shirts bearing the logo “Beaten semi-finalist Champions’ league 2005”. Unfortunately, you will never read that. Ah well.
