Everybody’s Talking About… It!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There’s whisper of it in The Commons
Scant murmurings of it in The House
Gordon Brown has said it’s not his problem
After Jim Leighton had let his side down.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’ve heard said Esther is miffed about it
Down in Australia with Ant and pal Dec
Even the panel on Strictly Come Dancing discuss it,
When their ground breaking show is off air.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Blokes down the boozer can’t grasp it
Girls speak of it coyly with friends
It’s moved from the back to the front page of the tabloids
Why it’s even been on News At Ten.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Obama took time out, to talk about it
With Hilary Clinton in depth
The word on the street, and what about this?
Is that it’s taken our minds off recession.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Chaps sipping cocktails, are dining on it
The FT is even having it’s say
Roger McGough’s written poems on this
Whilst The Old Vic’s discussing a play.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Schoolyards are awash with graffiti on it
By young fans as puzzled as we
Dizzee Rascal does raps getting right behind it
As does his rival The Streets.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Commuters are up in arms about it
As they angrily await cancelled trains
Them fine Football Poets are ranting on this
Just check out the long list of names.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Describe this great it, causing people to talk
Let Capello to the nation explain
What the man in the street, his sister, and us all,
Wanna know, is why?….. Rob Green ain’t getting a game.



More power to the people!

Get in!
