King Kenny

Top pocket, middle or bottom,

Kenny wouldn’t fail to pot ’em,

He was the King of Deep Screw

And the Firm Follow-Through,

The fabled Clark Gable of the Table

(Tho’ not as good as Auntie Mabel,

Three-time champ from Kettering,

Whose safety play took some bettering).

Kenny could have been a contender

But he could never quite remember

The order in which the colours got potted

Even when they had all been spotted.

Yellow green brown

blue

pink

black

Was the thing that held young Kenny back

Until

that day

he balked at

baulk, smashed up

his cue and ate his chalk.
