The Ryder Cup

The Ryder Cup does nothing to enthrall me,
It’s hard to cheer on Spanish, Brits and Swedes.
Europeans oftentimes appal me –
I’m underwhelmed by their titanic deeds.

Of course I want the Yanks to get a hammering.
It’s natural to wish they come to grief.
But allegiance to a continent? I’m stammering
To find the words to show my disbelief.

The downing of Kerry

Did Kerry believe they had just to turn up?
Perhaps, if they’re brutally candid.
But though they had one hand locked hard on the Cup,
The Tyrone lads caught them red-handed
