Crawling there!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 At Riverside
The same old story,
Of chances but
Failing to make them count.
Told and retold
Hundreds of times
In pubs, clubs and lounges
Across Teesside.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Half empty Riverside Stadium
Bears witness to the pain
The grief and the tears
That lie with the dream
– dream of premierships football.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Real fans,
Who braved the artic weather
Saw determined performance
A nil – nil draw,
Spoils shared,
A precious point.
