so much onus put on a game we were never going to win


Half


Your quota never got there,
Though it was on track to hit.
We were at the halfway mark,
We were getting on a bit.

Off course we were not,
Though just before we may have been,
A Dawny figure lying still,
A dirty slate washing so clean.

On a par I would not describe
the team hot on our heels,
A quadrad for all the sprints
'Fore the throw of banana peels.

Then the dynamics somehow changed,
Coordinating centre stressing out,
Lashing at the fringes standing tall,
Falling like a teapot spout.

The water in my sails evaporated,
Two were conceded, head down
The rest deserves mention not,
For the summons presented my clown
