Paco’s Poem on Tuesday


 Title: One Known Pleasure

Saint Patrick’s Athletic 0 Shamrock Rovers 2.

 Out of the cup at the quarter final stage.

It felt like a giant hammer coming down

on my head.

I ouched out loud.

We were never going to get  to two cup finals in a row



The Pats fans had a banner up which read-

One Known Pleasure –

a play on the Joy Division album title

from the early 1980s,

showing their indie cool and intelligence

like meself.

It would look great on a red T-shirt.


I’ve seen the best minds of my generation destroyed by

Madness, Ginsberg wrote.

They must have been Pats fans.


(Written by Paco aged seven and a half on Friday 13th September, 2013 in Richmond Park, slightly stunned and queuing for sausage and chips afterwards, heavy on the mayo; my fortnightly treat).

    Eh, don’t be neglecting your homework now …otherwise the teacher will be making ouching noises as well …
