Semi Final Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We few, we happy few, we band of Tigers;
For he today that shouts his heart out with me
Shall be a Tiger; be he ne’er so vile
This day shall live long in his memory;
And gentle folk in Yorkshire now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their tongues while any speak
That roared with us on Semi Final Day!



(Apologies and respect to Wm.Shakespeare)
Essentially a parody of the Saint Crispins Day speech from Henry V

Editor Note: .Football Poets on Facebook Début Poem of The Week’

Welcome to Football Poets David. Great debut poem and fine re-working of the St Crispin’s Day speech. (NB: No favouritism whatsoever re St Crispin also being the inspiration for our editor’s Shakespeare driven name of course!) More please.
