Out Of The Mists, The Slain

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 After the fog at Preston
which the cameras could just about see through
if not some of the players…

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 After the rattling of the guns in far-off cities…

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Before the chaos in the House,
accusations flying…

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Burnley and Derby, those two great giants
of the past, walked into the Semis
of a competition that has been written off
more times than the proverbial
journalist’s notebook –

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 but which, to the fans,
is still as big as any,
(and in a dark winter in Britain
you’ll know what I mean if your team has won it) –

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 It’s The League Cup 2009 –
already an epic.
