THE Return

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Your return
Brings such unbridled joy
Like a long lost puppy
Or an eternally missing toy

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The excitement
Has built and built all week
Fortune telling to the fore
As into the future we peek

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Will we contain ourselves
Whence comes the very first score?
Rhetorical question –
We’re ultra ready for that roar!!!


Admittedly, this should apply to last week too.
Premiership starts tomorrow.

Co-incidentally (& maybe a subliminal influence) – my Fantasy PL team name is Score n Roar !

(yes, for those old enough to remember: that was my favourite comic; like Crispin I’m another Roy of the Rovers fan).

without any World Cup or European Championships or Olympics, it has a been a tortuously long close season!
