Scoop Poem: OOOOhhh The Pain!

OOOOhhh The Pain!

Sound asleep in peaceful bliss
this was one game I would not miss
the alarm went off as pride set in
I was about to watch the All Blacks win

The whistle blew we were underway
on a meek and dismal English day
The Frogs drove in, we dropped the ball
we were brought to a slow and painful crawl

They gouged our eyes and killed the ball
my hatred grew as I watched the maul
it did collapse then they bit his ear
Don't they feed the bastards over there.

Ooh aaah Umaga dropped a few
while Merht's he missed a tackle or two
Goldie melted like a cube of Ice
Lucky Lomu walsed in once then twice

At the end of it all my heart was broke
my pride was shattered, I began to choke
my moment of weakness I shed a tear
as I realised this was my greatest fear.

Alas my friends cause yes it's true
the All Blacks lost for me and you
but heads up high we played our part
LETS FORM A MOB AND GO KILL HART!!!!!!!

anon.
