St. James’ Park

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Home of Newcastle United
You were – until
9th of November
A crazed billionaire
Massacred millions of dreams
– all Black and White.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Sports Direct Arena
The brand name
For the sake of Ker-ching of cash register
Message in black and white
Everything is for sale
The Players
The club and
Its soul.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Year of heartache endured
Season to take pride
Chance to harvest memories
To be embellished with each recount
Annihilated
For the sake of Ker-ching of cash register
R.I.P. St. James’ Park.
