20:Twenty Lord’s 25th May 2009

The 20 twenty played at Lord’s today
Was lots of fun for Surrey fans (that’s me)
It’s always good to watch your heroes play
Especially when they win easily

Though Newman went for quite a lowly score
Usman and Ramprakash hit perfect form
For Middlesex the bowling was quite poor
And Surrey’s two old men hit up a storm

The Panthers play in pink, and they should blush
They never found a way to hit the ball
With many wickets falling in a rush
They didn’t trouble Surrey’s team at all

The champions gave way without a shout
When Schofield and the others spun them out
