P.S.
Wouldn't it be good if someone can do next verse and we are able to keep this going until end of season!

It's been a long time since I felt moved to contribute again to the Forum. I have been reading avidly but became heartedly sick of some of the bad mouthing that went on towards the end of last season. And now it is being inferred that people could be referred to as lice. Can we just cut this out and return to proper debate - whether you agree or disagree. If you cannot control yourself just don't post and have a quick walk round the block to calm down. I would love to be able to post poems about football again. Return to proper debate and you may be unfortunate enough to read them.

IT ISN’T NICE TO BE CALLED A LICE
(Unless you are a lice)

It isn't nice to be called a lice
Maybe twice or thrice - it cuts no dice
Using every device to wind others up - a fool’s paradise
It just isn’t nice - to be precise

It’s a cheap shot, imprecise, it just isn’t nice
Critics should be enticed not sliced
It’s a forum ,not a paradise just for sycophants giving advice
No matter how that advice may be as I say imprecise

We’re playing well, FGR our passionate vice
So let’s not call people lice as a rhetorical device
Spice by all means - but lice - it cuts no dice
To be concise, precise let’s excise lice and just be nice.
Time is but an illusion - lunchtime doubly so.

Apologies for not replying in poetry, I know my capabilities especially at 7am!

Debate is healthy and spurs many to read and contribute to the forum. Inappropriate vocabulary and insults reduce the numbers participating as Farmcotian’s introductory remarks suggest.

This season’s forum IMO has covered a range of topics and been pretty balanced, but thanks for the poem, it’s a timely reminder to us all.

Was wondering if poetry had become an endangered quantity but welcome it's return.

The atmosphere around the club seems far better than last season, less evidence of fraction and division, long may that continue.

Farmcotian, it's fab to have you back. I've missed your poetry.

This is a belter, and very apt.

First time you have written a 'lousy' poem Farmcotian!

Great words & sentiment. Not sure what caused the hostilities to break out as they did, just when manager, coaches, players & supporters seemed to be on the same sheet. Hopefully the sourness will soon be forgotten as we resume the love-in!

You say it's not nice to be called a lice
but please try and read your electric device
Not a single person was called that word so precise
But if the cap fits, wear it just like a grumpy lice.

The actual feeling that I was being so precise
Was that the club was playing with MC's advice
In such away that the lice couldn't write in their device
But just creep back into the wood awaiting their grumpy vice.

Lice coming out of the woodwork?

:idea: They should require a CARP-entry ... ''LICE-ence to appear'' when we lose.
Quo tendimus?

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
