National Coach

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Beware the chalice,
For the poison it contains
Can build and destroy.
It will take you to great heights,
It will ruthlessly destroy.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Take care; the press will
Put you on a pedestal,
Back every move,
But fail to win a trophy,
They will relish your downfall.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 For the fall from grace
Will be swift and clinical.
The rise and fall
Reflects the short term need for
National pride to shine.
