Tears for South Africa: France 1-2 South Africa

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Gallic courtesy for the host
Head and shoulders from Khumalo
Free State the circus ring
In football’s greatest show

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Gourcoff’s hideous elbow
Les Bleus scorched with the red
Mphela bundled in for two
Les Bleus long left for dead

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Desailly’s heart divided in two
He said with “Hope and horror”
Team split, with no self esteem
A good look in the mirror

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Bafana missed some sitters
Wasted hatful to rue
Sub Malouda hushing Africa
Consolation for the Blue

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Tepid French stormed the Bastille
Truth is they long lost their way
Awaits a Paris tomato plastering
Egg throw party at the Champs Elysees

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Lord of the Manor of Frodsham
Salam Anelka’s makeweight
Sad swansong for Thierry
Last exit for a football great

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Lesson for Domenech the Comic
In patriotic demonstration
Home carnival astronomic
Astonishing Rainbow Nation

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Refusing to shake Parreira
Still time for the final insult
Record post war reign is over
End of mad Raymond’s cult
