This is the Boot – a poem for Huddersfield Town

This is the Boot

This is the boot
The amazing boot
That kicked the ball
And scored the goal that won the match at Wembley.

This is the player
The amazing player
Who filled the boot
That kicked the ball
And scored the goal that won the match at Wembley.

This is the team
The amazing team
That played alongside the player who filled the boot
That kicked the ball
And scored the goal that won the match at Wembley.

This is the coach
The amazing coach
Who built the squad and trained the team
That took the player who filled the boot
That kicked the ball
And scored the goal that won the match at Wembley.

This is the man,
The amazing man
Who backed the club and backed the coach
Who built the squad and trained the team
That took the player who filled the boots
That kicked the ball
And scored the goal that won the match at Wembley.

This is the club,
The amazing club,
With its pride and passion and history and grit
And people who cared what happened to it
That supported the man
Who backed the club and backed the coach
Who built the squad and trained the team
That took the player who filled the boots
That kicked the ball
And scored the goal that won the match at Wembley

These are the fans.
The amazing fans
Who follow the club through thick and thin
Who sang for joy and lifted the roof
For their club, with its pride and passion and history and grit
And people who cared what happened to it
That supported the man
Who backed the club and backed the coach
Who built the squad and trained the team
That took the player who filled the boot
That kicked the ball
And scored the goal that won the match at Wembley.

This is the bus
The double-decker bus
That took the players from their ground
And round the town
With its cheering crowds and rugged pride
To share the moment with the fans
Who follow the club through thick and thin
Who sang for joy and lifted the roof
For their club, with its pride and passion and history and grit
And people who cared what happened to it
And supported the man
Who backed the club and backed the coach
Who built the squad and trained the team
That took the player who filled the boot
That kicked the ball
And scored the goal that won the match at Wembley.

This is the league
The Premier League
The amazing reward for the town and its fans
Who follow the club
With its pride and passion and history and grit
And people who care what happens to it
And support the man
Who backed the club
And backed the coach
Who built the squad and trained the team
That took the player who filled the boot
That kicked the ball
And scored the goal that won the match at Wembley.
