    Flight 609

    They had names you could relate to,
    Colman, Taylor, Edwards.
    Names that you’d hear at pit-heads,
    Whelan, Pegg, or Byrne
    or up at t’mill,

    Cloth cap names
    who went to work on the bus
    with their supporters.
    Gentlemen players.
    Two years the Champions.
    Two false starts.

    Innocent Babes
    lost after drawing away
    who will live in our hearts,
    though their beloved game
    has died forever.
