Fanatical Football Followers.


 The crack of dawn,

start of your week

in order to obtain tickets from

a favoured website featuring your foot-balling heroes.

Checking timetables, trains, transport –

 to carry you to watch your idols.


 The trusted burger bar serving sweaty burgers,

and  tea to wash them down. Sustenance while you

 picture – the anticipated clash.

Solid stone steps show the way to your seat of painful plastic,

rows of seating in rising series,

perfect conformity –

but you won’t be on it that often.

The loudspeaker announces the team line ups,

 roar of the mob – for their idols.

The referee’s whistle commences this gladiatorial battle

of our modern age.

The smell of the turf,

the roar of the crowd,

a touch of class,

a flick of elegance,

they score!


“ You’re not singing, you’re not singing -You’re not singing anymore!”

This makes all the plans worthwhile

as thousands are reminded,

this is football.
