“We are staying up ”
sing the relieved fans,
fingernails stopped being chewed
right down to their quick.
No more nervous tension
stress levels returned to normal,
sweat dried up on furrowed brows.
End of season matches
can be so bad for your health,
especially down at the bottom.
But your team is now safe
relegation is now not on the agenda,
supporters breathe a huge sigh of relief.
Another campaign of high expectations
climaxed in a battle of survival,
it went right down to the wire.
” So we are staying up ”
sing the delighted crowd,
“but until the next time”
says the cynical long suffering supporter !
