Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

Such a gentle pursuit is the game of cricket
You bowl the ball but never kick it
If you get a googly and just can’t pick it
Coarse mid-wicket will tell ya where to stick it

Cricket can be very slow
I normally choose not to go.....
But this match sounds rather rude
And I'm left thinking its sorta crude!

That's Not Cricket!

Willie got the cricket ball
And gave it quite a whack,
It smacked Mr. Pederman
In the middle of the back.

Someone call the doctor,
Someone call the nurse,
Someone call an ambulance,
Someone call a hearse.

Pederman got angry.
Pederman got mad.
Then Pederman got even,
And Willie's lookin' sad.

Someone call the doctor,
Someone call the nurse,
Someone call an ambulance,
Someone call a hearse.

How come
that I howl
when I get bowled?
Beware of
Bowled Ball Syndrom!

I don't know about cricket
Couldn't even care less
Because here in the states
It doesn't have much success

Ten years in the Antipodes left me with a fondness for cricket. But I've always wondered ...

If you're going to call a game "cricket", why don't you have other games called "beetle" or "dragonfly"?

And if you're going to call the winter sport "soccer", wouldn't it have made sent to call the summer sport "bowler"?

Then again, you'd probably think you had cause to believe that only Yankee low lifes play "baseball".

I don't know about cricket
But my croquet wicket
Is somewhere in the thicket
When nobody's looking
Maybe I'll kick it!

Whether Sachin, Waugh, Dhoni, or Ponting
The rules for cricket say a coin is wanting
High up in the air the skipper does it toss
That likely decides who's gain it is, and who's loss
