When the sky is blue from dawn to dusk
Ozzie weathermen aren’t fussed
So the talk Down Under turns to sport
“Ball Tampering” makes cricket fraught.
Shock! Horror! strikes the Nation’s game
Commentators cry for shame
A cheating Captain in full view
The players in a right old stew!
For many an avid cricket fan
The camera close-up clearly can
Put a new spin on ball play
And take the shine out of the day!
