EAST FIFE 4 FORFAR 5

entry picture

He’d never see his classic joke come true while he’s alive,

But mortal flesh may rot away while genius survives.

It nearly happened years ago in 1964

Perhaps this was his mojo,

                   “Forfar 5 – East Fife 4”.

 

But in the game the other day their cup tie was a draw

And watching from God’s stadium the ghost of Eric saw

The match go on to penalties; the score he would contrive

In comic jest came home at last –

                    “East Fife 4 – Forfar 5”

Surely this can only offend East Fife fans, MC? I hope to return to the knuckle shortly.

For this welcome whimsy, you deserve to get off - Scot-free!
