More sinned against

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We seem more sinned against than sinning,
For they smite us when we’re winning,
And we’re grinning all the way
To three more points.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Our opponents end up crying,
For the red cards keep on flying –
No denying that we play
With aching joints.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Four league games, four dismissals,
Matches rife with urgent whistles,
Ref just bristles when they let
Those tackles sting.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And the red cards that they brandish,
Though at times a mite outlandish
Are a grand dish that they set
Before the king.



Four league games, four opposition plays red-carded?
