Injustice

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In memory of the 96 Liverpool fans who did not come home from Hillsborough on April 15th 1989

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A beautiful day for a football game,
At Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield
Floods of fans gathered on the terraces
Expecting a memorable win

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Wembley beckoned, it was the same semi-final
Liverpool and Nottingham Forrest
More fans gathered,the situation wasn’t right
‘Open the gate’ was the call
The call that led to disaster

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 ‘It was the fans’ they said
‘They were drunk’ they said
A disgraceful lie that was told
But now cannot be recalled

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The fans that perished,crushed to death
That led to this tragedy
The lies that were told, they have been caught cold

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 23 years on, The Truth is out!
Those words ‘Justice for the 96’
Ring around Anfield
Lest we forget
What really happened that day
The 96 angels that were lost
Shall never leave our Liverpudlian hearts

I have been a massive Liverpool fan for a long time and one thing I had to learn about the club is the history, the reason I wrote the poem is because I want to show respect for the victims of the Hillsborough Disaster and because it has effected me ever since I heard about it, I want to express that the cover up was shameful and now all of us Liverpool fans want Justice!
