1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Brazil 3 Ghana 0

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s the Jules Rimet Legacy Stakes
On Greyhound Derby day
The runners are lining out
As the bets come into play

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The favourite is the thoroughbred
In trap number one
Decked out in yellow and blue
‘Samba King’ guaranteeing fun

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The underdog : ‘Black Warrior’
Like a daschund in trap two
But if the hare be the trophy :
He ain’t ghana get you!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 France 3 Spain 1

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 What makes you think I feel betrayed? 3 poems

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 # 1

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So, cheating does pay
as Henry, makes a foray
into an area most unbecoming

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Proving even the best
(at whose behest?)
degrade to down-dumbing

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 # 2

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 What Arragones said
was a racist slur
the likes of which
no-one should concur

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Ditto, Henry’s theatricals
leave such a bad taste
I hope to God it’s not repeated
’til now I’d thought him chaste

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 # 3

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 Bless’t be the path to righteousness
Bless’t be the path to goal
Bless’t be the impassioned purveyor
Of salvation to the soul

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 Thierry Heny, with his va-va-voom
Used to give me that vibe
I’d delight in his sublime finesse
E’en tho’ not one of his tribe

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 So how hurtful ’tis
When such an angel turns
Sweet memories of pure bliss
Now in damnation burns

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 Zizou with his added zest
Restored some artistic parity
But for the gurning gooner traitor
I’ll not afford him charity

Notes

Tuesday 27th June, 2006

Brazil 3 Ghana 0

France 3 Spain 1

Thierry, leave it out son, it doesn’t become you.

Thierry Henry resorted to blatant cheating in this match – one incident, most unlike him.
Led to France’s second goal which gave them the lead.
Let’s hope he leaves it there.
