You’d never been to a live game,
so I chose the Plymouth match
(three easy points to get you started).
We scored the first goal and the last.
about the five they scored in-between
(yes, I know I look down-hearted).
On the way out, you tried to console me;
and unsure of what to say-
(Come on now, no point dwindling on the past).
And at least we saw a lot of goals!
as I cast you the coldest glance
(reflecting how your first game would be your last).
