Once More Unto The Plastic (sorry Bill)

Once More Unto The Plastic (sorry Bill)

Once more unto the plastic pitch, once more,
And close the game out when we are ahead.
In sport
There's nothing so becomes a team
As modest self effacing calm and confidence,
But when the call to arms blows in our ears
Then imitate the Glawster men of yesteryear,
Stiffen your tackling,
Summon up your will
Disguise your passing with all skill and wit.
The lend the scrums a solid unity
And prove yourselves immovable as rock.
Let your line out skills o'erwhelm them
As totally as any gone before.
No extra time or referees decisions
Must give you cause for sighing or regret
The game's afoot
Let you not die wondering
And on the day declare for all to listen and
Cry 'All or nothing.
We are the Glawster Boys.'

Taxi for ALT!... to speed him to the changing room so he can read this out just before they leave for the (plastic) pitch.

As the Plastic looms
A lost thought returns.
Instead of Shakespeare,
It should have been Burns.
