Sir Silent One has recently paid me some visits
Not silent in appreciation for his charming wee snippets
Thank you Sir Silent
You are the finest
And may I add, love your jolly old game of cricket
My Grass and Mole Cricket
My grass is being killed by mole cricket,
Even beneath my fence that is a picket;
Grass is dying;
We are crying;
Do wish there is way that we can lick it.
Sir Leonard Hutton famous for cricket
Idolized him yet we played in the snicket
His bat willow three springs and all
Ours a joke no umpire to call
Yet did dream of 'Lords' having took a wicket.

I had always enjoyed playing cricket
Till one day I told them to stick it
I was in at the crease
And was brought to my knees
When a googly hit me, middle wicket
We invented cricket and football
And guess what we useless at them all
We loose every game
Drives the supporters insane
But we good for an after game brawl
His team’s chances he hoped to enhance -
So a cricket player took a chance
He’s caught ball tampering
Such disgrace it did bring
He got snapped with his hands down his pants!
I want to entrap him to set him free
But how do you catch what you just can't see
I come near the sound
Yet when I'm around
His PEEP becomes mute as a sand flea!!
Peep PEEP peep peep PEEP I'll go CRAZY
This cricket I'm calling him Zainey
He PEEP peep peep PEEPS
I can't get my sleep
My brain's become foggy and hazy!
Boxing Day hip hip hooray
A day to relax and watch cricket
Aircon pumping ,44 degrees outside
Come on Aussies take a wicket!!!
Americans lifted their picket
When Cuba proved they can't lick it
The bureaucrats came
And went back home lame
The Yanks just can't tolerate cricket!*
*Research concluded American diplomats
were assaulted by Cuban crickets rather than a sonic
A duck that loved to play cricket
Slipped up on a sticky wicket
Of course Tom was there
With Marmite to spare
And a silver spoon to flick it!
