Today's poem was inspired by the news that Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne had been detained under the UK Mental Health Act, following a number of incidents at a hotel in Newcastle, England.

Gascoigne was instrumental in getting Tottenham into the 1991 FA Cup Final, scoring 6 goals in the lead up, including the opening goal in the 3-1 semi-final win against arch-rivals arse***. Unfortunately he missed most of the final, watching Tottenham's extra time win from a hospital bed after injuring his knee (badly enough to miss an entire year's football) early in the match.

It looks like he'll be watching another Tottenham cup win from a hospital bed.
So, get well soon, Gazza.
