Shall I Compare Thee To A Summers Days…

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When The National Anthems played,
Heaving multitudes on Wembley Way
Where partisans sing and sway?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A Wednesday night at Walsall
In the glamour that’s The Cup
Where the pair up front couldn’t hit a wall
And it seemed our game was up.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Maybe Mansfield one dour winter
When rain did tumble down
Where thoughts of being indoors eating dinner
Made you smile, as you almost drowned.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Shrewsbury one fine Saturday
When our Love would surely die
Yet at four nil down, the way we sang and stayed
Made the home crowd question, Why?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Three down up at Wrexham
Was an uppercut to the chin
We groggily made out way to the station
And heard we’d quickly knocked three in.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Underdogs at Old Trafford
With a snowballs chance in hell
Where we nicked a draw in a smash an grab
Made the journey home bode well.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 This Love of mines had it’s ups and downs
As the rhymes above bear proof
It’s a Love seen me labelled as a clown
Left trailing in Love’s pursuit.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 In an answer to why I’ve done these things
I can only say in Love…and hope
Though there is a time makes my heart still sing
Watching The Robins play The In-breds*
Beside You at Whaddon Road!

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 So… Shall I compare thee to a summers day,
Stamford Bridge basking in the sun?
Too right I will, but then again the name
‘Whaddon Road’ makes my heart strings hum!



Written for someone really special.

*Nicknames for Cheltenham Town and Gillingham respectively.

Go well, be lucky and keep smiling.
