The Ashes 2; Day Four

The hosts had a much better day
Remembering how they can play
But wicket by wicket
We’re winning this cricket
Let’s all hope the rain stays away

Begun at one Helluva clip
But Pietersen soon left the ship
When no others followed
All Aus pride was swallowed
Their press men were swinging a whip

But Watson and Katich and Clarke
All started to fan up a spark
And Hussey’s unbeaten
So they’re not yet eaten
By Graeme the English spin shark!
