Poems tagged ‘The O’s’

Justin Edinburgh 1969-2019

Justin lived life fully
An O’s hero to the ordinary
Driving Orient to the League trophy
Taking 23,000 to Wembley

Whether it’s Southend or Billericay
White Hart Lane or Pompey
Those you knew speak with clarity
You were a man of great integrity

At Brisbane Road with Dave and Kirsty
We stood with Brillo and Jobi
All thoughts with your family
You made a good few folk so happy

Sorry Mr Kinnear Sir!

PayByPhone put me in the West Stand
I spied my PE teacher in town
Chris Kinnear and Dover would
Leave Brisbane Road with a frown

A blitz sends The Whites home empty
McAnuff put the O’s clear
The skipper has now scored
In a row for the eighteenth year

Koroma and Harrold make it three
Rampant Charlie Lee conjures a blur
No mercy for Chris of The Crabble
Sorry Mr Kinnear sir!
