An Exciting Prospect

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 “I promise that I won’t get dirty today,”
He called to his kindly old mum.
“I promise I’ll play where you tell me to play,”
He said to the coach, looking glum.
“I promise I won’t cause that full back more pain,”
He answered the poor ref capriciously.
“I promise I’ll skin you again and again,”
He smiled at the full back maliciously.
And so all and sundry concurred and agreed
That he was a promising player indeed.
