Fish That Wander.. in Carlisle

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 while premier fans in thousands
enjoy spotless pricey comfort
this weekend
with images of Tsunami
still fresh in minds
and collection boxes on every corner
lest we forget
spare a thought
for those
closer to home

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 while football careers on regardless
how cruel this weather for Carlisle United
currently sitting second
in the Nationwide Conference
everything swimming along nicely
metaphorically speaking
until now

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 imagine then
waking up to find
your crossbars under water
your ground an ocean
your seats and terraces a sea of mud
your tunnel with a flood line
that would be the envy of Florence
your players houses uninhabitable
potentially millions of pounds worth of damage
and worse still
two as yet un-named
now famed
and through the care of ground-staff
gently training
through thick and fin
on what was your pitch

after the deluge
