A Silly Poem








Where have all the Pirates gone ?

That used to cheer with us

Who used to fill the beer tent full ?

We complained about the crush


Where have all the young girls gone ?

Who came to see the boys

Who flicked their hair and fluttered their eyes

We miss their youthful noise


Where have all those people gone? 

Long time sleeping

Waiting for the Stadium

And dry, their powder keeping ?


When the Pirates reach the promised land

Will they still be sleeping?

Or will they then in thousands come

Out from the woodwork creeping ?


Where have Cook and Wardy gone

Who used to steal the ball ? 

Where is Rhodri, lightning fast

And Laurie, strong and tall


Where's Señor Alberto gone?

And old man-mountain Paver

They've all matured, and now moved on

To duller, grown-up labour


Where have perfidious Albion gone

Our local derby battle

Or C.A.B.s ( or Laun-ces-ton!)

Thank God! We've still got Cattle !


And where had Dickie Evans gone?

Long time sleeping

He was waiting for this day

And still, the faith was keeping.

For sure- all good -family suspect more money flying out-just gotta keep 'er indoors happy and somehow involved. Girls ok methinks,son keeping his council (!)...
New board working professionally gotta be the envy of other teams in our league plus team under Paves and Gavin have everything going for them (despite recent run)looking very good.
Win tomorrow and we possibly shoot up the table.

So right Dicky. We are in a brilliant situation compared to many other clubs in this league with the way things are progressing off the field. We have been so close in so many of those recent defeats and the league is incredibly tight from third to eleventh. Everything crossed for the Donny game. Very tough task, but we can be sure the boys will give it everything, and that's all we can ask.
