Tee shirted football fans
Walking down a sweltering Fulham Road
Last evening were in good spirits.
A two day heat wave in London
Had switched their mindsets
From cold to summer mode.
All they wanted
To round off a beautiful warm day
In the capital, was three home points.
In life unfortunately
You don’t always get what you want
So when The Drog
Smashed one against the bar
In the dying minute.
The home fans went completely radio rental
At missing out on a long odds title shot
For about thirty seconds.
Gave the boys a deserved round of applause
Pondered on what might have been.
Then thought about: Barcelona,
A day out at the FA Cup Final,
and the fast approaching English Summer.
As they walked from the floodlit stadium
In to the humid late evening.
Realising that on the whole
The boys had tried, and had given it their best shot.
Which as fans
Is all we ever ask of our team.
That they at the very least…try!
