A Diversion From The Cares Of Life - Poem by Francis Duggan

For most football fans football is a diversion from the cares of life
A temporary relief from the tension born of inner strife
They meet on Saturday after the game at the pub
Their lives seem to revolve around their football club
When their football team lose they feel and look sad
Without a football win to celebrate their weekend for them bad
Football as important to them in their lives
That is how it does seem as their children and wives
And in the pub when their team has kicked a winning score
They sing their club anthem to a loud encore
The praises of their favorite footballers and their favorite club they do sing
Football in their lives is a most important thing
On their moods how their team perform do depend
For them it can be a happy or a sad weekend.
