The Ageing Process

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Each stumbling block is slowly jumped
As the summer months draw ever nearer
Providing a respite for players and fans all tired
But after a few weeks everyone must be pumped
For the new fixtures and possible points become clearer
As squads line up with beaming faces freshly acquired.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Questions are asked of veteran forwards
Struggling on to feature in another season
With aches and pains etched on their ragged face
Desire still remains but managers look towards
The energetic new bounders who have valid reason
To take the old fan favourite’s place.
