FAI Cup Final 2007

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Like ants that toil upon the soil
Around the anthill’s base,
We do not care what happens there
On further up the face.
Our eyes don’t scour the mighty tower
With eagerness and hope
Although we feel that someday we’ll
Be back atop that slope.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Where once the Cup would fire us up,
Alas, it’s all gone flat.
Plight unresolved, we’re not involved
And hype can’t alter that.
We’re too removed, as time has proved
To bother with Cup glories.
We’re like the ants not at the dance,
Engrossed in local stories.



The first time in a good number of years I haven’t written an FAI Cup Final poem. Just doesn’t seem the same somehow. For the record, Cork beat relegated Longford 1-0. Awaiting a poetical report from Darren O’Keeffe!
