Do we want to do it all again?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Oh do we want to do it all again
And suffer all the darts that lie in store
As part and parcel of the new campaign?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Oh do we want to risk such dreadful pain
As that we felt ‘pon Lim’rick’s seismic score,
When emptiness was all that did remain?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Oh would it not be wiser to refrain
From hope that leads you glibly to the door
Then slams it shut with cavalier disdain?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Oh must we ever bear the mark of Cain
Occasioned by events three years before
Condemned to linger on this barren plain?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 What oracle exists that can explain
Why Tolka’s floodlights should be such a draw
On filthy nights of cold and constant rain?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Oh why should we subsist on this terrain
Where earth is hard and nutrients are poor
And break our backs for very little gain?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Oh is it right for hopeful men to deign
To suffer angst, yet still come back for more
When hope runs out and light begins to wane?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Oh yes.
Can’t wait to do it all again.

Notes

New season only ten days away, thank God.
Its been a very long and dreary close season.
