Game On

In snooker there is but one rule To play your best at the crucible Professionals play under extreme pressure For the crowds joy and immense pleasure Fifteen reds set up on the table Potting away at different angles Six different colours to add to the score A 147 break and the crowd just roars The talent so hot, competition is fierce These geniuses play without any fears The crowds are gathering to take their seats To watch the rocket increase his lead Ronnie stoops down to take his shot Suddenly a noise in the crowd, oh' he’s shocked Michaela raises her voice, calm down please To late the distraction unsettles his ease In an effort to continue he chalks his cue Playing for green, his minds on blue He strikes the white and hits the green But it rattles in pocket, he's caused a scene He knows he’s missed even before the shot His concentration gone, another frame lost Due to start a another frame now Selby to break, the crowd crying out Commentary throughout has been superb The skill of these players we've observed An absolute brilliant entertaining game especially that last twist in the final frame (Oh' Wait a minute, I think we've been snookered!)
