space : crying into his beer

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 aliens weeping
at rumours sweeping
inter-galactial crews;

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 a man-child, whose
reputation precedes
contractual needs;

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 is outer space
the only place
to get a game?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 or are the same
temptations calling
this Geordie bawling?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 a tearful Gazza
hazza beerful
in his topsy-turvy world;

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 but now, no more free kicks curled
no more benders;
just life at the menders

a fantasy supposition based on Paul Gascoignes career reaching rock bottom,
for recently he has been hawking himself around, ready and willing to play for anybody, also including a spell in China.

best wishes to Gazza though, rumour has it he recently checked into a clinic in America to combat his drinking.

let us hope that he can confront his demons just as well as Tony Adams has.

plus, a nod to spaceboy
