Memories of 1966-Haiku

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In today’s paper
there’s a free World Cup wallchart
got all the matches.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I pin it on wall
like I did as a young boy
Nineteen Sixty Six.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I look at fixtures
all the England games marked off
come on Three Lions.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Just like Peter Pan
we never really grow up
excitement building.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Not long now to go
count down the days to Brazil
do your best England !

I said I wouldn’t let any hype get to me this World Cup but when I saw the wallchart there in my paper I felt a tingle.
When I stuck it up on the wall I had a memory come back to me of my mother telling me to take that down and go put it in my bedroom.
Like I said us football fans never really grow up do we ?
