Shoddy Roddy Out-Kilcoynes Louis

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He must have thought himself astute,
This shameless and ill-mannered brute,
With morals feeble and minute,
Dressed up in brash and shiny suit.
This cancer, which has taken root,
Within the soft and fleshy fruit,
Has spawned a foul and poisoned shoot,
With scorn and hate in swift pursuit.
Never one for staying mute,
This student at life’s institute
Has plucked the desecrated lute
And charmed the snakes with monstrous flute.
No pleadings ever can dilute
The way that he stuck in the boot,
Was morally so destitute.
Nor can his new-found club refute
The accusations so acute.
The facts, way, way beyond dispute
By all, do surely constitute
A charge of wilful disrepute.

Notes

Four games before the end of the season, Roddy Collins, recent appointee as bottom club Dublin City’s manager and former belittler of the League of Ireland during his disastrous spell at Carlisle, has jumped ship to join the only team Dublin City can overhaul, Shamrock Rovers. Apparently he informed the Dublin City chairman this morning, hours before a crucial fixture against Drogheda.
Shamrock Rovers status as giants of the Irish game was destroyed by their chairman, Louis Kilcoyne, who sold off Rovers ground in the eighties, took a pocketful of cash and ran. Allegedly.
