Why Can’t I Wax Lyrical?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Why can’t I wax lyrical about the Carling Cup?
I try to write a verse but eventually give up.
The performance was poetic and the victory was sweet,
Inspiration should come to me but a poem I can’t complete.
As a writer of Humorous verse it simply can’t be done.
I cannot find inspiration in Tottenham 2 and Chelsea 1.
‘Happiness is not funny,’ Charles M Schulz did say
And I find myself extremely happy at the result yesterday.
I suppose I’ll write about things going wrong and other funny stuff,
And just accept that the result itself is poetry enough.

Notes

I felt like some kind of record was needed by me…

Come on you Spurs
