On hallowed ground

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Faceless workers spill
From the shadow of the mill
On hallowed ground they congregate
For eleven men to consecrate
In the thousands they came
In worship of a game
And to entertain the mass
Of dour working class



Spawned from a father’s memories as the old PNE Pavillion stand was torn down last year.
