WC2010 : Day 10

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s a headline writers day!
The French in disarray!
Kaka coshed!
The Kiwi’s quoshed!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But then the editors had to get busy
For the All Whites refused to play ball
All those pre-written captions torn up
When they held the Italians to one all

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And Kaka didn’t take a blow
But supposedly meted one out
If that’s not overturned by FIFA
Then their authority crumbles to nowt

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Keita should be banned forthwith
For his rolling and outrageous faking
And all the cheats who wish to prosper
Should have a message to send them quaking!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But for me that opportunity was missed
When they failed to sanction Henry
And every rogue has inferred
Tis easy to get away scot-free!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I’m not a believer nor advocate
Of in-play technology
But to hit them hard post-match
No way usurps the referee!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 A feature so far of this colourful cup
Is how the mighty are falling
England, Spain, Germany falter
But the Azzuris were appalling

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 And the French are melting down in public
In full view of the press
Then a player’s statement read by Domenech
Sacré bleu! What a mess!
