SONNET FOR ROONEY

  SONNET FOR ROONEY

 So I gets this call from Gareth Southgate

 And he's laying it on like marmalade,

 Saying come back Rooney you've got it made

 Playing for Everton, O what a state!

 I thought your ambition was to be great!

 England's not a problem don't be afraid,

 At Goodison you'll always make the grade,

 So get those three lions back on you mate.

 

 But I thought it over cos I'm not dumb

 And now that I'm no longer in my prime

 I figured maybe the moment has come

 To give the team I love a thumbs up sign;

 So sorry Gareth with England I'm done

 For it’s club before country every time.
