Delayed debut.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I think I cried when I saw the snow
That November Saturday morning
Building snowmen and snowball fights
Just did not appeal
Playing football did.
My first match a victim of the weather
If only Windy Nook school playing fields
Had underground heating
I would have made my debut
I should have made my debut
I could have made my debut
How could Mother Nature
Be so cruel to a Nine year old rising star.
The following Saturday
Albert Snook had recovered from the mumps
And I was dropped.
