He whose tongue would not know wine,

Who would sloth in a hotel chamber

With wife and television,

Whilst fellow men made merry,

Toasting to good life and hard rugby.

He who would prey others to bed,

Tearing the entrails of our celebration

For the sake of his own precious slumber.

Whilst humble kyle, drunk and disorderly,

Had not a wink since two nights before.

He who would forfeit the first night

Of the biggest weekend

In our little rugby world

To sloth with his wife.

May he forever be:

"Person the poem is about"
