Much Ado About Nothing

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 If all these great writers
Were still alive in these days
I believe they’d all be soccer fans
And write about it in magazines and plays.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Shakespeare predicts a winter of discontent
After watching Coventry City play
Performances that are much ado about nothing
And a comedy of errors home and away.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Dickens writes about the fans great expectations
For the team who wear the sky blue
But alas, he forsees a season of hard times
If they don’t start picking up a point or two.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 John Bunyan reports on the Coventry v Plymouth game
And he forecasts the pilgrims progress
On up the table with three away points
Leaving the city pointless and in a mess.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Victor Hugo says the fans are feeling Les Miserables
With shoulders drooped like The Hunchback of Notre-Dame
While Orwell reckons they’d rather watch Big Brother
Or stay in and read his book Animal Farm.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But Shakespeare finally tells us fans not to fret
He’s not really writing off our football team
In fact he predicts a top six finish
Because he saw it in a midsummer nights dream !



I thought I’d try and incorporate classic writers and their books, into a football enviroment, and my team, Cov City, have given them lot’s of material !

Editor’s comment :
what a coincidence –
this poem in straight after another poem also quoting from Shakespeare!

Great idea Kevin, brilliantly executed.
All’s well that ends well ūüėČ

Check out a collective effort we did a few years back (in similarish vein) :
