Samuel Peeps

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There once was a match up in Scotland,
Twixt Inverness and Partick Thistle,
The game had been going
An hour and flowing,
When the referee swallowed his whistle.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 About to blow up for a free kick,
[The first big transgression of note]
He gulped and then swallowed
The cord, which then followed
The whistle descending his throat.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They asked all the hapless spectators
If anyone had a spare whistle,
But nobody had
And so Caley were glad
When the game was called off, but not Thistle.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The ref was obliged to appear before
The Scottish Disciplinary Committee,
The leaders of which
Were one Hamish McSnitch
And one Aberdeen Angus McVitie.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The ref tried in vain to explain and
To put forth his own point of view.
But Hamish said, “Don’t!
Ain’t it clear that we won’t
Want to hear a damn peep out of you!”
