Reds Forever

Dave Renton



There's so much wrong with Reds' fans
Like all our vast, complex tribe
One day too young, the next too old
One day too quiet, the next too loud
Who would ever forget Heysel?
Or Hillsborough still more?

Blind we can be, as partisans
Rough-headed, loyal, unconsoled
And yet we share a vivid language
The revolutions of a drawn-out quip
'Don't bomb Iraq, nuke Manchester'.
'Le Cosmopolitanisme Vaincra'.
