A news item just caught my ear
Totally unrelated, to the sport I hold so dear
But you know how my mind ticks
And presents itself to the world as Clik’s
Always looking to mix fact or fiction
And give it some sort of football depiction
And so to the news : a lorry spilled it’s load
A flurry of activity, all across the road –
In amongst Cavan’s multifarious glens
A flapping cluckload, of slaughterhouse bound hens
Seven thousand delighted escapees, some of them laying!
And it brought me back, to days of yore, when on roads I would be playing
And I wondered, who of todays modern crop
Would best be equipped, to play on a surface where embryo’s plop?
Robinho and Cristiano Ronaldo, with their fancy stepovers
Eminently suitable, to tiptoe between pullovers
And of course, sadly, the recently departed Bestie
Who delighted at many a ‘Road’, from Carrow to Elland, thru to Gresty
But one group, who should certainly do their training,
with these wizards casting spells –
All at Celtic football club – with the Bhouy Roy on board –
they’ll have to get used to walking on egg_shells !!
