Don’t Look So Glum Martin Jol

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Like Shrek in the rain
The downward lips fastened
Eyes steadfast fixed on fixture lists

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Ignore backpage spin
Of sack-race predictions
What passes for news is nonsense

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Spouted by those
Who talk a good game
And never get their boots muddy

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Only the waters
Sullied by the ink of poison pens
Drawn like hasty swords.

Notes

Can’t believe the nonsense being sprawled across the backpages re Jol’s job being under threat. Some people need to get a grip.
