A New Start

A New Start

As the buds of this season
They grow and they sprout
I have a worrying affliction
That I’m worried about

I never used to care for d’Elections
Tallies and votes left me numb
But this car crash TV predilection
Made my visual interest succumb

Now that it’s all done and dusted
A new dawn that may bring an upturn
Some new TDs can be trusted
While others our stomachs still turn

Block A this Friday, football consumed
My one focus Cork City FC
For Wexford and City, service resumed
Both clubs with their own new TD

Last Fridays general election  had me strangely attracted to the coverage.
I think it was allure of Fianna Fáil getting their come uppance for luring the country into such an awful state.

The new season starts tonight and we play Wexford Youths at home, both clubs have brand new representation in the Dáil.
Wexfords chairman Mick Wallace was voted in as an independent candidate in Wexford and Jonathan O'Brien a member of Cork Citys board was also elected in Cork.

This poem will appear in tonights Cork City FC match programme.
Let the season commence.

  1. Nice one Darren. Good luck for the season but not too much.
    I have a great rhyme - policies with Mick Wallace's. Now all I have to do is write a poem around it.
