haiku + O'bama = Charlton Limerick competition

A number of people from the poetry clique have been asking me to run a limerick competition. It must be original and about Charlton.

Our defence last season was the worst

Our keeper with injuries was cursed

We were so slow at the back

Although in height we didn't lack

That we haven't yet been linked with D. Pursed

  • There was a young man named Chris Powell
    Whose start to his job was most foul
    He seemed quite unable
    To move up the table
    Much to the joy of some moaning, negative, short-sighted posters on Charlton Life.

    OK it needs a bit of work....

    Yeah but way better than mine.
  • Well perhaps the D. Pursed bit could do with a literary massage? ;-)
    A brave thread to start though Cords, well done!
  • A manager of Charlton named Chris

    Thought being a boss was a piece of piss

    It was no match made in heaven

    With one win in the last seven

    and strikers that constantly miss!

    Not really only joking!

     

  • There was a great striker called Hunt
    As we all know he played up front
    He scored with great ease
    retired to Belize
    ....actually I best stop there.
  • Semedo was loved by this fan
    A trier, he worked and he ran
    Technically gifted
    The crowd they were lifted
    So up yours you prat Bexley Dan

    ;_)
  • "Charlton forever" all day i will sing
    As following Charlton is a glorious thing
    Be it as premiership fighters
    Or down in the Blue Square
    My deep love for Charlton will always be there.
  • There once was a team named Athletic
    Well known for their passing aesthetic
    Welsh, Bartram and Duffy
    Won nil in the cuppy
    Now that's what i would call poetic!
  • Some excellent Limericks there, I will have to go some if I am to retain the trophy (which is several tins of heineken - shaped like little barrels - which somebody left behind, not doubt knowing that one day it would make a fine prize in a limerick comp).

    Incidentally scidders, much as we on CL want to encourage the CL youth, technically the 1st ,2nd and 5th line should rhyme with each other as should the 3rd and 4th.

     

  • AFKA, that made me laugh out loud.

    I loved Charlton for many long years
    Despite most of the time full of fears
    Then one day in May
    Off to Wembley to play
    Sacha saved and my joy was all tears

    Our manager the great Chrissy Powell
    During a game, to the Ref shouted "foul"
    The goal was allowed twice
    Then the Ref took advice
    Gave a free kick and threw in the towel
  • The Charlton board a new manager anoints

    Cos once he played with supple joints

    Now teams that play there

    Have never a care

    Cos they always depart with three points!


    Huzzah!


  • I think that paulcafc is currently winning. But months to go before a final decision.
  • Our new owners got us out of jail

    With their millions we just couldn't fail

    But the joy was just fleeting

    In Bromley for a meeting

    Chris says we've got no more than Rochdale

  • Some thought that we'd win it with ease
    League 1 would be such a breeze
    But with Alan McCormack
    And Francis at the back
    The player's we picked up on Free's

    The fan's had all had enough
    So the new board got all tough
    Parky got the sack
    Chrissy came back
    But even his start was rough

    This summer he'll build a new team
    and promotion is what we will dream
    Have faith in the man
    and support his plan
    and a trophy for us might just gleam

    so will we go up? who knows
    what players will join and who goes
    win, lose or draw
    whatever the score
    i'll be there till i turn up my toes

    Simon Francis only gets picked at all

    Because Solly is so bloody small

    He plays at right back

    Can't defend or attack

    He should just f off back to Roots Hall 

     

     

  • Ubby, Tangy and LA. Quality, brings a tear to my eye. I think at the moment its between Tangy's last one and LA's.

    Do you think the person who knocked up the CL badge get us a cheap printing deal so that we can publish our works?

    A new boy to this Forum week three
    I dared to question Parky
    Get over yourselves I said
    The reply was 'Who is this Deadred'?
    Were Chirpy and Curb It onto me?

    My anonimity I have retained
    But Henry was deeply pained
    'We've moved on' now he pleaded
    'So please dont mention Parky's name'
    I said no problem I'll try and refrain

    I then traded it with Bexley Dan
    He claimed 'I'm better than Semedo I am'
    I said No No
    you weren't a pro
    Cut your losses whilst you can

    He just couldn't shut it
    Started picking on Leroy and Off it
    Stop digging I said
    'Get lost Deadred, this is my thread'
    BD was beyond help and full of Bull Sh*t

    An apology has since been tendered
    Relationships hopefully mended
    As good as a pro?
    We'll never know
    But a lost cause should never be defended



  • By Gillingham fans we are hated,
    Our coaches make them frustrated,
    Fans from Kent, 
    Went to see Darren Bent,
    So all of this fuss was created.

  • McCormack was quick off the blocks

    To tweet on Twitter a load of boll-ocks

    That in just over an hour

    He'd take his wife up the Tower

    But even she says he's crap in the box

     

  • Such quality. If Melvyn Bragg was reading we would be featured on the South Bank Show. Three good new entries but at the moment LAs last is winning. It has everything, it scans well, mentions a current footballer, has sexual innuendo, uses poetic license (boll-ocks) and most importantly refers to a (in)famous past incident beloved of all true badge carrying lifers (the McOxo incident).
  • Very, very good. Uboat for me so far. Hilarious.
  • No badge for me then Cordoban so I suppose elevation to the CLIQUE is completely out of the question! Oh well it's early days.
  • Deadred, you will note that I have given lavish praise to all and i was going to comment that you are way out if front in the sequential limericks that tell a story/relate a personal journey. But I was trying to, shall we say, keep my powder dry, for a bit longer on that.

    Apologies if you haven't got a badge yet, I am quite surprised as they do seem to be handing them out to just anybody these days. As regards to Cliques, you are very definetly in the poetry clique (subsections haiku and limerick).

    I, myself, am trying to get this discussion up to 100 comments where upon I will be awarded the coveted silver lifers badge. But then you will know doubt know all about that.

    A clever young Chairman called Slater
    Studied all of the Charlton match data
    Then went in disguise
    To see Dennis Wise
    And beg him to take over later

     

     

     

  • Favorablemente bastante Cordoba. I'll try again.

    We shuffled through the weeds of the valley of old.
    In the blistering heat and the shivering cold
    Then in nineteen ninety two
    Thanks to the work of a few
    Floyd Road was brought back into the fold.

    Great!
  • @ Cordoban Addick.

    Incidentally scidders, much as we on CL want to encourage the CL youth,
    technically the 1st ,2nd and 5th line should rhyme with each other as
    should the 3rd and 4th.

    Excuse me while i pick my arse up off the floor.

    Are you under 50? If so you are CL youth. By the way excellent 2nd Limerick, shows you have a mature head on your young shoulders!

    If you are over 50 and you have major saggy arse problems, you do know that their a lot of things from surgical trusses to manzires that can help. I would post a website but admin don't like advertising links.
