The Big Injustice

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 No wonder Bohs are furious,
No wonder they’re irate,
No wonder that they’ve gone and worked
Themselves into a state.
They’re pretty apoplectic
And they have sufficient reason –
These unpredicted fixtures at
The tail end of the season.
There was no indication
[Or one never came their way]
That staying in the Cup results
In much more games to play.
It wasn’t even hinted at,
No innocent suggestion,
Nobody warned that fixtures often
End up in congestion.
Naturally it’s Ollie’s fault,
He really makes me sick.
He tried to get the game postponed!
Now, what a dirty trick.
It’s clear now that he cracked it
With his clever double bluff,
Naturally he must have paid
The powers-that-be enough.
The Big Club has been victimised,
And Ollie’s got his way,
And so they’re going to stay at home
And won’t come out to play.

Notes

A Cup replay means that Bohemians – the self-styled Big Club – have to play four games in eight days, and they’re throwing a knicker fit.
Ollie, Shels MD, originally asked for the game to be postponed because of Wes Houlihan’s involvement in the U21s, but was refused. Now he is refusing to back Bohs’ petition.
