Football Ground Mirror

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Red and white, we’re north end dynamite
Behind the goal
shouting and singing:
we’ll support you ever more;
up and up and up we go.
Towards the middle,
there’s less noise,
but more tension
contained in harrumphing
bellows from experienced campaigners

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Behind the dugouts chairmen and executives ponder football and finance

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 tension from seasoned supporters
exhibited only rarely
the odd shout.
There’s more noise,
Towards the goals,
up and up and up we go,
we’ll support you ever more;
singing and shouting:
Behind the goal
White and Blue, we’re the southern crew

Notes

Another footie folding mirror: this one tries to demonstrate similarities between the two sets of supporters in a ground, with often only their team loyalties and colours dividing them.

If you have any folding mirror poems and want to submit them for a folding mirror book I have planned please see details at my website: www.greenygrey.co.uk
