Who will be the Scapegoat?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The hacks in newspaper offices,
In Fleet Street,
Straining at the leashes,
Like Cerberus at underworld gates,
Waiting for England to lose.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Hunched over the key boards,
Scenarios worked out,
Who will make a mistake?
Get sent off?
Miss a penalty?
Waiting for England to lose.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Who to vilify?
Which former hero,
Will be sacrificial lamb,
Rooney, the boy wonder?
Lampard, the first to miss,
Or Carragher the last?
Could they possibly go after,
Ronaldo, the foreigner?
Who will boost the circulation most!
