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
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.
