A short poem about the Bouncing Day Massacre, written from the perspective of a Wendy...
So the tale that I tell thee,
Is of the Blades agean't Wednesday
It were on a Sunday in S6
We were gonna mek them blades cry and shit bricks!
We were so full of ourselves, confident!
We'd not started bouncing when we had to relent
Free kick out er't box and up stepped Fleck
Curled into the corner, Mi Dad shouted "OH FUCKIN 'ECK!"
All me mates said this'd be a walk in the park
Then he walked through t'defence, that donkey, Leon Clarke
He only made them two to the good
stepped through out defence like they was made of wood
United goal scorers the Mc weren't s'posed to announce
Let's blame the manager, whose name we can't pronounce
This shun't be 'appening, I wanna lose my temper
We said they'd be relegated by the end of September!
We're Real Madrid, but playing in a stupor
But we got some hope, before the break, with our Hooper
He nailed us a goal, against the run of play
You'd 'ave thought the Blades were at home, not playing away!
Just after the break, the balance stated to sway,
And we scored again, with a player whose name we can't say!
'Ere we go, we're up and 'ere comes the trouncing
Then 'ere it comes, the infamous Hillsborough bouncing!
We can only say that them Blades had been lucky,
But we'd not paid attention to that young ginger lad, Duffy.
I'd just put a tenner on us, on 365 and Sky Bet
When that little ginner hits the back of the net!
He turned to salute his once bouncing abusers,
We're all turned to stone stone, like we'd looked at Medusa!
Three sides of Hillsbrough in silence, stood STILL
And me dad looking puce, like he'd choked on some swill.
This can't be 'appening, they've not read the script,
Three sides er't ground as quiet as a crypt.
We shout "CARLOS OUT!" and that sort of malarkey,
Then he's through again, you know that reject Clarky.
Ghosting through, like the defenders are dips,
Then beating Westwood, with the subtlest of chips.
We're being beaten by a pub team from the Dog n Duck!
I think its abaht time I logged out of Facebook!!!
