Poems 21 & 22
The first to mark the lodging of a bond to allow Truro City FC to continue playing ...
The second to mark the deposing of our esteemed Cornwall Council leader on a vot of 'no confidence'
After 50 years of Bond attraction,
‘Brosnan, Connery, Lazenby, Moore,
Craig, Dalton’, loads of action!
In Truro give three cheers for ..
The ‘Perryman’ and ‘Masters’ scheme
They’ve lodged a very special Bond
To rescue Truro City football team.
A timely, temporary magic wand!
Their precious bond merits distinction
We all had toes and fingers crossed
To save White Tigers from extinction
We really thought that all was lost.
They have answered fervent prayers,
And ‘Bond-like’ staged a rescue.
Now it’s for Lee Hodges and his players
Though shaken, stirred to win through!
Let’s make up for our switchback ride.
Let’s climb way up that table!
You’ll have to swim against the tide.
With our support, we know you’re able!
PS You’re a couple of good fellas
We all wish you “Oll an Gwella!”
Alas! Alack! Alec!
So it’s farewell to dear Alec
Our leader’s been deposed
We’d no need for our pet Dalek
To turn him into toast!
He’s got a well-deserved come-uppance
Ring the bells!! Rejoice! Three cheers!
He’s the man who cared not tuppance
For the Tortoise Rescue, just crocodile tears
Here, typically, he rode roughshod
‘Twas not his only clanger
So, it has come to pass that this Tin God
Can reflect and look back in Topanga!
He can withdraw into his little shell
And let democracy take its course
Our rebuilt Council, we wish well
Jedi-like “May with you be the force!”
