Peter Goulding - 50 not out

Peter Goulding at 50

A lovely fella or so they say
Had a milestone on St Stephens Day
Dutifully follows Shelbourne FC
A rhyming genius for all to see

We had a poetic duel you know
About Ricos hat, long time ago
His quality, out of my depth
But into rhyming battle I leapt

Our rival teams did this invoke
Passions shared, like minded folk,
There’s someone else who’s just like me
Likes League of Ireland and poetry

To me he’s been an inspiration
An expert in self publication
He’ll help and advise all day long
And never ever see you wrong

His poem count now is just scary
Subject matters, complex and varied
I think he writes some in his sleep
Counting poems, no room for sheep

The sands of time pass rather nifty
Last Sunday took him onto fifty
May all who meet him soon emit
That Peter Goulding’s full of wit

My fellow poet Pete Goulding reached 50 on St Stephens Day.
Happy Birthday Pete !!

A Christmas Wish

A Christmas Wish

Summer season brings delights
Balmy July Friday nights
It has been better for our game
There’s things I long for all the same
I miss games on St Stephens Day
Exiles home for holidays
Stand together shoe to shoe
As a freezing wind cuts you in two
Halt time Bovril such a treat
You can no longer feel your feet
Back to the pub, real fire burns
Hot toddy makes your feet return
Post match sessions were sublime
I miss football at Christmas time.

It’s hard to believe its 8 years since our last Christmas game.
Dec 17th 2002.
Cork City defeated Bray Wanderers by 3 goals to 1 with a John O’Flynn hat trick.

Back to a semblance of normality this week.
New tune from Crystal Castles with vocals by Robert Smith.

Still loving The Drums.

This week all i've been listening to...

is Lazytown.

Lazytown Rules my house.
Lazytown Rules my car.

Robbie Rottens evil plans are all that keep me going.
Well he is the Master of Disguise after all.
