Football Seasons

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As children we gladly troop along
And follow the piper’s thrilling throng
Enthralled bewitched by the green of the pitch
The banners flags and aye the songs
As teens we slowly drift and stroll
To fall in love with rock and roll
The snarky verbs of Lydon swerve
The punkish volleys of the turf

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Middle age and money thinly spread
Whilst waistlines grasp elastic death
The starstruck heart no longer beats
And yearns the football of the street
A grassroots heaven terrace free
Of pomp and advert neon plea
Thus tender years of youth must flee
Give way this day to vintage stage
And all the better for the age.
