The Ashes 4; Day Three

For Aussies the day started well
And England’s last wickets soon fell
Some half decent batting
They’re up off the matting
Then all of their hopes went to Hell

The visiting team are still jumping
A run-out and then a missed stumping
Till Bresnan got started
Dismissed the half-hearted
It’s more than half-way to a thumping!
