The eager jostling and pre-match gossip –
(New signings, todays’ opposition, who’s in form),
Raises it divisions higher than the dismal drudgery
Of the dole queue and the bus stop.

Blue and white shirts and scarves unite us
In pre-season hope and resolve –
Together we can take on the world and beat them!
(Or, at least, Swindon and Port Vale with a bit of luck).

Dirty money changes hands for a crisp ticket –
Clutched closer than a winning lottery line, we emerge
Into the light (and a cursory frisking)
While we breathe in the contrasting aromas
Of stale urine and fresh programmes.
