Not so good Friday

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The palm leaves were laid at our feet
As we rode into Monaghan town.
Hosannas were fulsome and sweet,
Though they promised that they’d take us down.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Our bodies were shaking in fear,
Our blood seemed to freeze in our veins.
Our angel refused to appear
And Satan laughed loud at our pains.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And then they dispensed a cruel blow,
As sharp as a spear in the side.
We cried out in anguish and woe
But the wound was too deep and too wide.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Why have you forsaken us Lord?
We asked, at this vicious attack.
Why answer our prayers with a sword?
And why has the sky turned so black?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 They jeered at the crown that we sported
And laughed at the lead they protected.
Have faith that the Devil is thwarted
And our hopes will be soon resurrected.



Monaghan 1 Shels 0. Third game of the season and something of a reality check for us on Good Friday.
