Conference Houdinis – Forest Fire

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 spare a thought for lesser realms
where fans are used to straining
they cling like ivy to stone walls
it never needs explaining
consistent in their hanging on
like clifftop vines they lie
those Conference Houdinis
who never will say die

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 the mighty Histon vanquished
with some twelve hundred souls
all willing on as every year
for any kind of goals
bring on the next Galacticos
the final match away
a win to clinch survival
at Grays come final day

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 and just like in the Premiership
they battle to the wire
but can the Green survive again?
….bring on the Forest fire !

So surreal following Chelsea and Forest Green Rovers …definitely
keeps your feet on the ground and hills ..if not hair on your head.
