Paco’s Poem on Tuesday
Title: Hello From The Moon.
St Patrick’s Athletic 2 Dundalk 0.
Yes -we’re top of the league.
We scored two goals
a big number 2.
Something solid to build on.
I jumped over the moon at full time and the only
ouch this week was when I hit my head on
M1 in Cancer, the crab nebula – making those
neutron stars spin even faster at its centre.
The Pats fans unfurled a banner before the match
which read –
Come Out and Play –
a reference to The Offspring’s
punk song from 1994 entitled
Come Out and Play (Keep ‘em Separated) –
It did what it said on the tin:
Three points separate the two teams.
Five games left.
More turbulence to come for sure –
our first title since 1999?
In my first season as a Pat’s fan?
I’m afraid to even dream.
I can’t stop now.
Only poetry can help make it all
Until next week
(Written by Paco aged seven and a half on 20th September 2012 standing on the moon, looking down on Richmond Park and singing When the Saints Go Marching In quite loudly, scarf in the air).
