The day of reckoning:
The long awaited gargantuan clash
Where cash is splashed
On bright banners,
And bars are packed
With fervent hopes and the
Biting banter of friendly rivals.

Suddenly – A headed goal!
The pendulum of emotions is set in motion:
Will we hang on? We need another?
Which sub? Which tactic?
The raucous cheers and booming boos
Take turns to fill each bittersweet second.

As an ashen-faced casualty lies inert
The frosted reality pierces my passion:
All fumes of festivity evaporate,
Replaced by the sad sobriety of shock and sorrow.
I truly am – a “sick Liverpool fan.”
