CFC Poetry Slam 12: Paging Julie Andrews!

Uncle Menno is back with more Spurs poetry. You know the tune! Everyone sing along!

Mike Hewitt

My poetical muse strikes at the oddest time. This time she (yes, my muse is a she) whacked me over the head with a Nerf hammer this morning while I was taking a shower during what has to be one of the busiest weeks in recent memory. So naturally I dropped everything to write it all down. Don't ask me why. It's better not to ask.

Feel free to add additional verses in the comments.


Rockets from Rose and a blast from Dembelé
Watching a Match of the Day on the telly
Hearing the crowd at the Lane start to sing
These are a few of my favorite things!

Hugo's quick runs that defy analytics
Knocking out Michu and silencing critics
Watching Sigurdsson excel on the wing
These are a few of my favorite things!

Ardiles, Blanchflower, Keano all macho
OHWHATTAGOAL, yes, and Peter Crouch's nachos
Modric when he had the ball on a string
These are a few of my favorite things!

When my stream burps
When a Kyle derps
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite Spurs
And then I don't feel so bad!

Talent at striker: Roberto Soldado
Holds the ball well - ¡Estoy enamorado!
Levy deciding to open purse strings
These are a few of my favorite things!

Freund's sideline antics and joy make me chuckle
BAE's Instagram, Andre's side-buckle
Dreamy Tom Carroll who makes me go "schwing"
These are a few of my favorite things!

Gareth Frank Bale, still a Lilywhite icon
Whalloping Arsenal, "Taxi for Maicon"
Memories of Ledley 'cause he's still the king
These are a few of my favorite things!

On a set piece
Or a free kick
When the Gooners score
I simply recall that my Spurs are okay
And then I'm not sad no more!

(But you know what? I like all of YOU, too!)

roosevelts' spelling and Kate Upton's hooters
#batcountry, BBQ, royal Dutch scooters
Frequent discussions of wrestling rings
These are a few of my favorite things

Banning the spambots and nuking Cry's photos
Poetry, coffee, and new t-shirt logos
Waiting to see what the Hoddle will bring
These are a few of my favorite things!

Steveilleux's beard and the Breaking Bad clutter
Earl of Shoop's gifs and the churning of butter
Fun stuff that the commentariat brings
These are a few of my favorite things!

When the trolls come
When the knees jerk
When the spiders crawl
I simply remember the Spurs that I love
And then I'm not sad... at... ALLLLLLL!!
