The Ashes; Day Three

The chances would not fly to hand
The way that James Anderson planned
As Hussey and Hadden
Proceeded to gladden
Their fans in that far Southern land

One hundred’s a decent amount
Two hundred is harder to count
But two sharing three
Seems excessive to me
It’s a score that is hard to surmount

When both of these heroes gave way
The English proceeded to play
But are our men stronger
And can they bat longer
Than they did the op’ning day
