Unromantic Football Fan

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 She said he was unromantic
a cold fish of a guy,
as he much preferred football
drinking beer and eating a pie.
She said he was unromantic
wished she’d never became his bride,
as even on their honeymoon
he sneaked off to watch his side.
She said he was unromantic
no compliments to her did he pay,
like when he bought her chocolates
he ate them while watching Match of the Day.
She said he was unromantic
should have wed another bloke,
but he never even heard her
as he was at a game away at Stoke.
She said he was unromantic
her feelings had been hurt,
yet he shouted down the stairs
” Have you seen my football shirt ?”
She said she was finally leaving
as he had no love in his soul,
and with his eyes on the telly said
” Did you see that, what a fantastic goal ! “

Notes

As its Valentines Day on the 14th of February here’s an old poem of mine revisited.
Who says romance is dead !
