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
Was the thing that held young Kenny back
he balked at
baulk, smashed up
his cue and ate his chalk.
