Seven Days Ago

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Just seven days ago
fans streamed down Wembley Way,
Sweet Caroline they sang loudly
it’s surely going to be England’s day ?
Just seven days ago
optimism replaced by doubt,
it’s still all level at the end
now for the dreaded penalty shoot out.
Just seven days ago
dreams came crashing down,
some supporters turned violent
while others wore a frown.
Just seven days ago
sadly it’s not coming home,
Italians celebrated wildly
on the streets of Rome.
Just seven days ago
the trolls are let loose,
they quickly turn on three players
seeing them ripe for nasty abuse.
Just seven days ago
football is put to shame,
but the haters will never win
as it’ll always be the beautiful game.

Notes

A week is a long time in politics someone once said. The same could be said about this game we all love I guess. This time last week I was sat in the club enjoying the beer and atmosphere and looking forward to a Three Lions victory. But it wasn’t meant to be but you take it on the chin using a boxing analogy. Still it was fun while it lasted.
