Frustrated bridge players have often resorted to verse - or worse - to relieve their feelings. "Goodbye to bridge" describes how we all feel on occasions. We all know how to bid and play - but stray from the path of righteousness all too often: "My way" warns partner of our frailties. "Slow play" is a director's lament - though Ros and Sandy have never gone as far as the director in the verse.

If anyone has any other interesting pieces of bridge verse, please do let us have them.
