The Charge of the Inglorious


I

Half a mile, half a mile,

Half a mile onward,

All into the Estuary,

Drove the men's sevens.

“Forward, the Inglorious!

Charge down the short corners!”

Into the Estuary,

Drove the men's sevens.

II

“Forward, the Inglorious!”

Their reputation notorious,

Though none of them knew

The Dark Prince's transgressions.

Theirs not to make reply,

Theirs not to reason why,

Theirs but to do and die.

Into the Estuary,

Drove the men's sevens.

III

DC1 to right of them,

DC2 to left of them,

Gilo in front of them,

Crispin's ginger injections;

Simesy with shot and shell,

Adam with his deflections,

Into the jaws of Death,

Into the mouth of hell,

Scored the men's sevens.

IV

Flashed all their blades just wide,

Flashed as they changed outside,

Never to be denied.

Charged down the oppo, the cold

Ne'er affecting their weapons.

Sam and Sahil: the midfield choke,

And when their line the 'Ring broke;

Gerhard and Dunga gave lessons.

Then an equalising stroke, and

Resolving no more concessions,

To a man they tracked back,

To a man, the men's sevens.

V

Shots to right of them,

Shots to left of them,

Shots off the crossbar.

Max with vital interceptions;

Stopping shot and shell.

Not one single hero fell,

The whole defence fought so well,

Resolute at the jaws of Death.

Clawed from the mouth of hell,

Trojan saved the rest of them,

With his ridiculous weapon.

VI

When can their glory fade?

Glorious the points they gained,

(less so Julio's Irish indiscretions).

Honour the way they play,

For they are the Inglorious,

The Inglorious men's sevens.
