To the Victor Go the Spoils

 

 

Tapped his foot like little Thumper

 

It would make his straight drives far from handsome

 

Less Kim Hughes and a lot more Handscomb

 

Imagine if he twirled his bat

 

And wore a white, floppy hat;

 

Imagine that, but reflect on this –

 

He was twice as good, and averaged half as much as, Smith

  1. Peter Crossing says:

    Very good.
    However, twice as good makes him a mere mortal.

    Will expect a Tigers lament on Monday?

  2. Sagacious CP. Cricket? Time wounds all heels.

  3. From the book of Lamentations…. EAT ‘EM ALIVE!
