Six Points Deducted

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Six points deducted?
It wasn’t our fault.
The League boys instructed
It thus.
It brought our impressive
Assault to a halt.
‘Twas somewhat regressive
For us.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But though disappointed
The way things have panned
(Should things be disjointed
In sport?)
Its better to dream
With a bird in the hand
Than have no damn team
To support.

Notes

Our charge back to the summit of the League was temporarily halted by forfeiting the six points we had gained against Dublin City, after the latter folded. As frustrating as it is for us, its better than being a Dublin City supporter.
