A New Start

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As the buds of this season
They grow and they sprout
I have a worrying affliction
That I’m worried about

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I never used to care for d’Elections
Tallies and votes left me numb
But this car crash TV predilection
Made my visual interest succumb

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Now that it’s all done and dusted
A new dawn that may bring an upturn
Some new TDs can be trusted
While others our stomachs still turn

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Block A this Friday, football consumed
My one focus Cork City FC
For Wexford and City, service resumed
Both clubs with their own new TD


We had a general election last Friday and I found myself strangely attracted to the coverage. I think it was allure of Fianna Fáil getting their come uppance for luring the country into such an awful state.
The new season starts tonight and we play Wexford Youths at home, both clubs have brand new representation in the Irish Dáil, Wexfords chairman Mick Wallace was voted in as an independent candidate in Wexford and Jonathan O’Brien a member of Cork Citys board was also voted in here in Cork. This poem will appear in tonights match programme.
Let the season commence.
TD = Teachta Dála = a member of the Irish parliament
