Rory’s rocket

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He’s gained a rep somewhat of a loafer
“Who cares, launch it” bellowed the gaffer

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 For insight on Stoke Ramblers very own duffer
Read Brittania Pulis not zonal Red Rafa

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 To retrieve the ball you’d need a chuck wagon
Hefty throw from the hidden dragon

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Pellet launched, weighing a hefty tonne
Bullet like force as the opposition it’ll stun

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Just what of it all would Sir Stanley make?
As purists scream this football’s all fake

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But as the fireball descends and opposing backs freeze
It’s more celebration at the potteries

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Number 7
