Summit of the Championship

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 On the summit of the Championship,
Buoyed with the knowledge that,
Boro rarely lose on Boxing Day
And also rarely concede,
On Boxing Day.
We waited to make the summit,
Our home for the rest of the season.
This Boxing Day Boro did not lose,
Or concede,
But fate washed us from the summit.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Today is the time to reclaim the peak.
We are at the Riverside,
Packed to the rafters and
Gary Parkinson in the crowd,
Does anyone have a recipe for Owls?
On Boxing Day
