Football Poem: England’s World Cup Misery

The World Cup Finals
we aim at – every four
long years,
But with the current
England team – it
always ends in tears!
No matter how we try –
or who the manager
is –
We always fail to
qualify – and we lose
on penalties!!

We used to be so
good – and we won
almost everything,
England’s brave lion-
hearts – cannot win
Please excuse my
cynicism, I’d love to
be more positive –
But with the shabby
performances – of
the England’s negative?

We seem to lack
the talent – and some
just don’t qualify,
We never win anything –
it really makes us cry!!
England used to be –
the very best of all,
Walking out onto the
pitch – all feeling ten
foot tall!!

Even the European
Championships – we
never do any good,
And we have “world
class” players – as we
darn well should!!
We have got some
brilliant players – but
many are from over-
We don’t have much
home-grown talent –
who can win for
England – with ease!!

And, why are they
always spitting? This
is so very dirty.
Running around
slobbering – getting
rather shirty!!
Maybe in the future –
England will reign
Well, yes, I know, but
I can pray – if only in a
