Paco’s Poem on Tuesday – Even Better than Ice Cream.

Paco

Title: Even Better than Ice Cream.

Saint Patrick’s Athletic 2 Sligo Rovers 0.

We won the league.

At long last.

Yes.

This feels so good.

Even better than eating ice cream in

the Phoenix Park in summer.

I thought my head exploded

when we scored the second goal.

But it didn’t.

My throat is hoarse.

My bones are dog-tired.

I’ll be swimming in the trophy

this Friday at the Derry match.

Then I must rest.

Paco’s Poem on Tuesday – Blue Monday.

Paco

Title:  Blue Monday (on a Tuesday).

Sligo Rovers 0 Saint Patrick’s Athletic 0.

Still top of the league

but level on points now

with my dead great grandfather’s

favourite team, Dundalk.

A terrible result.

I feel like Joy Division

when Ian Curtis died.

But New Order rose from the ashes

of Joy Division and released Blue Monday

a stonker of the higheest order.

All Pats need to do now is to have

six stonkers before the end of the season

and hey presto!

Happy days  indeed.
