97 souls, NYC

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Never forgotten…
even 30 years to the day
all those 97 souls
snatched, no longer to watch or play

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Never forgotten…
even from continents away
as I hark back in my mind
with sheer and utter dismay

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Never forgotten…
even my bairns do inveigh
at the injustice of Hillsborough
as through New York we foray

Notes

Clik on tour.

Traipsing through New York City (Chelsea Market) on the 30th Anniversary, my kids caught me offguard with a reference to Hillsborough.
