Name your ransom; what dowry for chief’s homecoming?
Brood at sea, despite occupying terra firma
Clan cut adrift, despite occupying terra firma
Old Blue Eyes lament awaits chief
Frankie’s throat cleared; though won’t sing ‘The Good Life’
Wine rack bereft of buddy merlot
For Pontefract cakes, blue is new black
For the brood, skies black are new blue.
Melancholy prevails in WF3
Cricket loving role model’s plight dispirits the lost
Vintage decrees octogenarian’s rancid affliction accepted
Though acceptance of torturous suffering not
A true gentleman; a true gentle man
Stricken, but after good innings
Fate though not at hands of 3rd umpire
Snicko or Hawkeye helpless for chief’s circumstances.
What reward secures chief’s return?
Castle Strachan denuded of king, disorientated
Strawb punnet seeks fridge liberty
Lovingly tended flora & fauna miss keeper
A score and ten year association on hold
Rhinos final awaits old man’s witness
Canker release thine grip on family head.
