Chess on Grass (Part II)

“I’m gonna wait on
With all my boundary riders
I’m gonna wait on
With all my sweepers
I’m gonna wait on
With that long on in place

But I’m gonna keep
A wide first slip
And I’m gonna keep
A wide gully
And I’m gonna keep
A wide approach
Till your mind
Narrows up
And can only see
What I want it to see”



“I’m gonna wait on
With all my boundless patience
I’m gonna wait on
With all my cut shots
I’m gonna wait on
With all my big hoiks

But I’m gonna keep
A wide eye
And I’m gonna keep
A wide stance
And I’m gonna keep
A wide approach
Till your mind
Narrows up
And can only see
What I want it to see.”


(To be performed by ACDC, ideally)

this brings a question...

why a collection experience of over 50 years nearly 100 centuries bits into it...repeatedly...

... & then I'm gonna take a toke,
waiting for you to croak,
Behind those red'n' paranoid eyes,
Lies a really smashed bloke!!! Some TLC for THC!

Cheers and thanks SP!

Barring VVS and SCG to some extent, the batsmen look anxious. Also, do not get a team vibe anymore. They look like they're playing for themselves. That works with VVS, 'coz he's always been an island, and can play with a disconnect - be it with the fans, media or admin.

But i think the others let it get to them. Esp RD and SRT.

But I do believe, it can only get better from here.

brilliant Sir...yet again...

on a lighter note...look what the NON-CRICKET atmosphere has done to you...it has changed you into a "Shayer" [POET]

Naked Cricket said...

UTP - Thanks so much sir!

i come and read the songs regularly; but find it difficult to word my sentiments. But one thing is for certain, I do enjoy the wizardry.

Naked Cricket said...

Glad you enjoy the songs AB, thanks a ton!

sraghuna - violence is golden

Good one again.. o'cricket poet... how I wish AC/DC play in India.

Naked Cricket said...

cheers scorpi.
Easy daisy, reckon AC DC will play here. They're reeling in the years - and that's when they all come around.
