Walking Away …

Today, Thursday 14 June 2012, Rangers 1872/73 (IA), was consigned to liquidation … history … oblivion.  Our wry, scornful poem is, accordingly, much more appropriate today than when first aired (on reflection, a little prematurely) early in May:

Walking Away

They didn’t do walking away –

unless you mean

from taxes.

Well, everybody did that …

didn’t they?

They didn’t do walking away –

unless you count

the rules.

Well, they were above them …

weren’t they?

They didn’t do walking away –

unless you’re referring to

their obligations.

Well, nobody minded …

did they?

They didn’t do walking away –

unless you’ve got

integrity in mind.

Well, that didn’t matter …

did it?

They didn’t do walking away –

unless you’re talking about

dignity.

Didn’t really show much …

did they?

They didn’t do walking away –

unless …

… hey, wait a minute,

they’re off!

Altogether, now:

“Cheerio! Cheerio! Cheerio!”
