Its a waiting game

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The metatarsal bone
Which to be used be virtually unknown
Is now in the media glare
And brings a nation to the brink of despair

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The innocuous foul which came
During a televised Premiership game
It halted the dash of our prince
And the pain on his face made us wince

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The signs just didn’t look good
When his toe was splintered like wood
The doctors carried out their scans
And it’s ruined our World Cup plans

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So now we’ll sit back and wait
It’s a time to assess and evaluate
Hoping the prince will prevail
Help claim our prize – the Holy Grail
