tricky winger wordplay

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 shimmy chamois leather
keep your legs together
natty nutty megs
from trusty left pegs
chirpy chippy chaps
preventing overlaps
busy whizzy wonders
bizarrely begetting blunders
nippy pippy pups
winning whirled cups
jinking chinking glasses
toasting measured passes
tricky dicky darting
has defences parting

conceived while washing the car and dreaming about the likes of
Charlie Cooke, Clive Walker, Pat Nevin, Damian Duff
and wee Jimmy Johnstone
ps – why is it that we don’t trust right pegs?

pps – if only the line could have read :
‘winning world cups’

instead, the one time it was won from these isles, it was done
without wingers, what a pity.
