POEM OF THE DAY

Look­ing Up

The Chronicle - - Feedback - JAMES BRIDGEWOOD

Down Burn­ley way, Turf Moor we went, three points was al­ways our in­tent. We aimed to make it three from three, these days that’s such a rar­ity. We got about them, bared our teeth, and played with quite a bit be­lief. We got a break come early doors, as one of Burn­ley’s own did score. But some­times that’s how luck is served, you some­times get what you de­serve.

And not much more was on the clock, when cheers would gal­vanise our flock.

For dou­bled was the lead we’d held. It looked like Burn­ley would be felled.

But hold the front page, stop the press, they pulled one back to up the stress.

And pressed up for the game’s last third, as from the Ge­ordie’s groans were heard.

But no we’re made of sterner stuff, we dug in deep and hung in tough.

And when the whis­tle fi­nally blew, our boys re­ceived what they were due.

Three pre­cious points to lift our Toon. wa look­ing up in­stead of soon!!
