The Gaffer

He knew the score and stated
suicide is like hanging
up your boots when
the season is early doors.
It’s going to ground too soon,
not waiting for the whistle
and refusing to play through
the pain barrier once more.
It’s not being able to look
at yourself in the mirror
because you’ve lost
the dressing room.
He was giving us the eyes.

Ray Miller thinks he’s somewhere between George Formby and T.S.Eliot when he wants to be between Althea and Donna.
