Spacehoppers – The Answer to Everything

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Our manager remained optimistic
Said we had to ‘keep bouncing back’
Get spacehoppers in to do the job
Thick skinned to take the flack

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Stewards employed for our safety
Fluorescent orange coats all alluring
Lined up around pitch edge
Spacehoppers would be more reassuring

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Half time oranges used to refresh
Now jelly babies are in favour
Spacehoppers could entertain
With races for the braver

Notes

The future is indeed orange.

That’s the last time I use ‘fluorescent’ in a piece, I had to read half the
dictionary before I found it. Dim Wit.
