Football Collections

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Dirty football boots and scuffs
Muddy recollections
Sunday morning kick-abouts
And mum’s apple pie with custard

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Touch once against the garden wall
And that very first back heel
Can you remember how fast you’d run
Or how far the goals appeared?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Tatty blue-tack heroes adorned
Every space on the bedroom wall
– Broken Subbuteo goalkeepers
– Leftover Panini stickers
A shrine to the game with love

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Every keepy uppy counted
Every playground cola can was claimed
By the football bound memories
That grow better with every day
