A ball of emotion

With joy in heart and spring in step, we walk

Down the shallow steps to take our seats.

All settled in, we gladly turn to talk

Of famous wins and infamous defeats.


The ball is up, the game is on – let’s go!

Hearts pounding hard, our hopeful spirits soar.

The other team kicks four points in a row…

Don’t worry yet – we’ve come through worse before.


We peg them back and things are getting tense.

We have the upper hand in this tough duel.

Just seconds left – disaster in defence!

Victory snatched away: God, sport is cruel.


Our summer’s over now, but never fear.

We get to do it all again next year!
