Euro 2020 opener

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m a year too late with my opening poem…
and yet, it’ll do
for on the back of something worse than flu
the competition was delayed
the nerves extra frayed
but soon it’ll be underway
and we’ll immerse as they play…

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The venues are varied, but recently modified…
with Dublin stripped
and capacity dipped
but it could yet be fun
so before it’s all begun
here’s my prediction
(with little conviction)…
if perfidious Albion fail to catch fire
or Southgate’s dithering leaves us in the mire
I foretell
neither boastfully nor bitterly
I quite fancy Italy
