WE WUZ ROBBED (AWARDS SHOWS)

Will it be flat cider or champagne fizz
when the presenter says: "The winner is...."?
Will it be tears of joy or tears of woe
on yet another hyped up TV show?
Will it be handshake, hug and kiss sincere,
brave face, stiff upper lip or inner sneer?
Will it be scandal or celebration,
choice of the phone-paying voting nation?
Will it be conspiracy theory stuff,
shenanigans and chicanery guff?

We held our breath until we all turned blue,
as fingers fumbled with the envelope glue.


Will it be flat cider or champagne fizz
when the presenter says: "The winner is...."?


The winners side cheered while the losers sobbed,
"Congratulations" versus "We wuz robbed".
