Boro’s Play-off Dreams

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Every match Boro plays
Every chance they miss
Every point they lose
Is a step away from play-off hopes

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Fixture list memorized
Calculator in hand
Lucky rabbits’ foot in pocket
Every match a cup final
Each result a step away from play-off hopes

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I dwell in the world of lotus eaters
World of optimism and yearning
And hope during each match
Even if only a mathematic chance
Remains for play-off hopes

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Fat Lady may have
Eaten, done the scales and gargled
Is on her way to the stage
But I’ll believe only
The play-off dream is over
When I hear the The Fat Lady sing.
