I'd love to be a poet
I'd write poetry all the time
But the problem that I have
I can't get things to rhyme

I'd write about Mayo
I wouldn't give a damn
About our 65 year journey
To once again win the cup

66 years with nothing to show
Their opponents are going for 3 in a row
The west is awake
But with the small ball
While the footballers from Mayo
Have won nothing at all
Is it their bottle
Or is it the curse
But their luck on the big day
Couldn't be worse
But still they come back
Looking for more
Come 3:30 Sunday
We're going to war
Write them off at your peril
Because this could be their year
That they'll land the big one
And quell culchie fear

Replying To Snufalufagus:  ""The Most Distressful County".....(by Snufalufagus)

"Oh the Green and Red of Mayo, weighs heavy on my heart,
Oh the Green and Red of Mayo, should just give up from the start,
Tis the most distressful county, that ever yet was seen,
They should ban all men and women from wearing red and green!....the red and green oohh!"

"Oh the Green and Red of Mayo, all born with two left feet,
Oh the Green and Red of Mayo, their a handy team to beat,
Oh they put their faith in false Gods, bleached hair and fake tan,
In the Tommy Murphy next year, they'll do the best they can!....the best they can oohh!"

"Oh the green and red of mayo, bridesmaid..never the bride,
Oh the green and red of mayo, ye can easy sweep aside,
Oh they blame it on an aul wans curse from nineteenfiftyone,
And with that excuse, sure whats the use...allows us to poke fun!!......to poke fun oohh!!!!"

"Oh the green and red of mayo, tis a county full of 'hype',
Oh the green and red of mayo, think for them that SAM is ripe,
Oh but history has shown us, tis in the final leg they fall,
And in a sorry line of green and red, back to the west they crawl....the west they crawl oohh!!!!"

"Oh the green and red of mayo, come again year after year,
Oh the green and red of mayo, they would move you to a tear,
Oh if Ballygowan was short on staff all they would have to do,
Is call up the lads from mayo, their an expert 'bottling' crew...oh, bottling crew oohh!!!!"


Regards,

Snufalufagus....Laochra Gael"
You seem to be one of the posters who left. That was a good choice.

Replying To Snufalufagus:  "What Manner of Men (- by Snufalufagus)

What manner of men are they, who wear the Navy & Blue.
Born to a town resolute, her warrior poets made.
Tough streets give way to a pasture, gentles all.
The weight of an ancient city on their shoulders rests softly.


Regards,

Snufalufagus....Laochra Gael"
Arrogant, pretentious one...who calls himself after a character in a story on Bosco.

You're a lucky Snuffy Hairy Harry didn't catch you on here.

Yours Hairy Harry, once a Slasher always a Slasher.

The Curse

Another year has passed them by, since that fateful '51
Too many lost! Can't happen again! This curse must be undone!
With two still left and going strong it oft did make me wonder
Why no one from Mayo took their car and sent these Martyrs under….
