GK Showboating

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’ve just done a stupid and arrogant thing,
a perfect replica of the scorpion king.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Was a feeble shot and there was no need,
for showboating of that irksome breed.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 My defence went mental but I’m not the first,
And by far it wasn’t the worst!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I’ve not got the guts to do it in a game,
in training -fine, but I’m not insane.



incidently, just thought i’d mention that today I came 3rd in the school poetry contest, as the only person not in 6th form. the theme was new life, and my fake name was (rather fittingly) Dodgy Keeper, all me mates guessed it was me straight away, the ribbing that followed is something I will never (be allowed to) forget!

Editor’s note :

Don’t mind them non!

Keep up the good work – on the pitch and on the page! 😉

And anyway – a little bit of flamboyance is good for the soul
