A Matter of Life and Death?

It may not be obvious

From the scene presented;

In which we stand

Shoulder to shoulder

In the dragon crowds,

But we are, normally,

Of different flags.

But make no mistake;

This night his strikes

Will be my strikes

And my shield will be his.

Spirits are high,

Pulses ramped

And we expect

Our red-men champions

To bring the whip,

The hammer

And swords of

Justice thunder

To your Iron Tower,

Your channel shore

Of golden sun and

Riderless horses!

    I remember you “confessed” some loyalty to Barnsley.
    To be absolutely honest the draft this grew from was put together during our hapless journey to the away leg of the play offs (in which Barnsley out played us and won 3 0,)
    So I didn’t post it, but revised a few lines and added the word “dragon” and re-cycled it as a Welsh “anthem”.
    Good game, best team won (just what happened at Barnsley, ironically.
    But Wales have nothing to be ashamed of!
