Bletherin’ On Cricket

Happen tha knows abaht cricket

And mebbe tha’s heard what we’re told

When Yorkshire’s the top county ticket

Then England are cock o’ the world


Now sitha that just doesn’t jell

Dassent tha think it sounds odd

For if Tykes are playin’ so well

Then half o’ t’ team’s in t’test squad


Why if all t’best lads are gone missin’

And laikin’ for England tha’ knows

Then how’ll t’rest keep on winnin’

Just think on that as tha goes


See, if t’Headingley side’s full of young uns

While t’others hugger up off on tour

Tha’d be addled to think they’ll make runs

Nor bowl ‘em aht for a reasonable score


So, when t’gaffers think Yorkies to pick

And oft-times I wish that they waint

Then t’county side goes dahn t’nick

T’would reight try t’patience of saints.

Thanks RM. Yorkshire have struggled a bit today against Middlesex, although the lower middle order are doing their best to dig them out of a hole!

Trevor - the depth of cricket ability in God's Own County allows us to lend England a hand and still win the Championship 3 years in a row! Far too good for Surrey!!
Love the poem by the way,
