So the redoubtable John Howard
Has proved himself no coward.
He’s stepped up to the wicket
To seek a role in worldwide cricket.
When first it looked as if he’d win
We saw again that old familar grin.
Now he’s sounding sad and sour
On hearing he’ll not get the power
To control an international game
In spite of his domestic fame.
Perhaps that is the very reason
He’s not selected for this season.
Surely the ICC would not choose a
Man as leader, now famous as a loser
In cricket’s happiest home, Australia.
There association with the idea of failure
Means Howard’s name has lost its magic.
Now this rejection! He really is a cricket tragic.
