Unleash the Beast

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 So here we are now 6 days over
My family still a 3 leafed clover
A waiting game was still the essence
Anxiety morphed to acquiescence

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Friday lunchtime, “work” as standard
Mind was drifting, thoughts meandered
Lunch was calling but whaddya know
The call it comes, all systems go

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 In the Brandywell that very night
Our City stars were burning bright
The Beast had 6 in the last three
Could he maintain his scoring spree?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 First gas and air, expletives plural
Until she got her epidural
Labour it did not prolong
A child was born, so big and strong

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 My phone went on, to spread the joy
To tell the world we had a boy
The texts instead came flooding in
To let me know of an away win

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I told them all, the far, the wide
The pride I felt, tried to describe
When Joffy scored, my son did roar
Beast also made it 7 in four

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The word was out, my son was here
A City fan, there is no fear
The texts they came, they never ceased
All with the words, “Unleash The Beast”



Finally he arrived, my new son Luke, on Sep 28th weighing in at a mere 9lb 12oz, his birth coincides with a goalscoring spree by Citys long suffering striker Denis “The Beast” Behan.
“Unleash the Beast !”
