So farewell, then, Commonwealth Games

So farewell then, Commonwealth Games

You are named for a strange idea
And you are a strange mix of sport
And places too

We didn’t originally want you
But you came
And we didn’t build the houses we promised
But the stadium looked nice

You’ve made Smithfield be the name of a place
Which was unexpected

You gave us back a monkey
But he’s bigger now and
Thank you for the other statue

You were OK
No bull
