Gloom upon gloom

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Snatching defeat out of victory’s jaws,
We threw it away once again.
Draws became losses and wins became draws
And all we have left is the pain.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We thought for a while we’d get out on parole
And walk out, head high, from this jail.
But promotion remains an impossible goal
And suddenly we’re looking frail.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Condemned once again to spend twelve months or more
In this cold and despicable prison,
Staring at walls and the cold concrete floor,
While others in here have arisen.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Conditions down here defy human rights,
The rations decidedly meagre
The minutes tick slow in this cold, lonely nights,
When you’re sentenced to be a low-leaguer.

Notes

A wretched end of season run saw Shels miss out on automatic promotion by one point and then crash in the play off to the unloved Sporting Fingal.
Yea we wept when we remembered Zion.
