Football Addiction

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It can end relationships
make you morose, but
it can lift the spirits and
put a spring in the step.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 It’s the middle of the week
but your mind’s on saturday
three o’clock, a six pointer.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No sorry, can’t make the party
nor that wedding next week
three games in seven days.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A drug? In a way yes, feeling
edgy, bit sick, need my fix
a good win should do the trick.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Why? Why do Climbers climb,
Sailors sail, Divers dive? It must
be in the blood, the genes, I don’t
know why.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Hate those barren summer months
holidays, cricket, Wimbledon (yawn),
get bad withdrawals, roll on August,
please hurry forth, be quick.

Notes

I’ve finally got round to reading Nick Hornby’s excellent Fever Pitch, a superb book, which inspired the above. I truly understand his passion, love, obsession, call it what you like,for football, and his team Arsenal, but in my case, Cov City, he’s not on his own !
