As a newcomer to Mr Fry's world I would like to add something I wrote during the last Rugby World Cup. As a football (soccer) loving, straight man with no real interest in rugby I'm not quite sure where it came from. Suggestions encouraged, please enjoy.


Ode to Sebastian Chabal

Sebastien, le bastion de Les Bleus

As a man c’est magifique,

I watch as a voyeur,

Marvel at a physique,

Of wonder and perfection.


Sebastien, the 7th wonder of the world,

Is your phenomenal beard,

The Gardens of Babylon,

Inspire where it is feared,

A monument to manhood.


Sebastien, a monster it is said,

By those without insight,

I see an angel instead,

Heavenly, strength, might,

A vision in blue lycra.


Sebastien, a man amongst men,

Like a moth to a flame,

Came Englands number 10,

Rugby no longer a game,

Art, beauty and the beast.

Personally, I always thought he'd been sculpted. Are you old enough to remember Garth in the Daily Mirror? Same artist, methinks.

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

My Dad always brought The Mirror and yes I remember Garth. I know what you mean, something of "the sculpture" about them both. Michaelangelos David playing rugby?

I'm not really a rugby fan and don't know who Mr Chabal is, but i thought the poem was really funny.- Pan
