Shocking Reminder

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It was as innocuous
As getting milk out of the fridge –
Use by Sept 11th …
And it brought to mind, all those lives
So pitifully ended
Back in 2001 –
Of all the futures soured
By the curdled morals
Of callous cowards

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Doubtless,
With a full Premiership fixture list
On this day in 2004 –
There’ll be the highs and lows
Following victories and defeats;
But we’ll do well to remember,
The real depths and despair, of those tragic events
And at the very least, bow our heads
For those loved and lost
