The Ten Thousand

by joetwo

In Poznan they all came to fore

From Dublin street and Wexford shore

 Not knowing what they had in store

Came the ten thousand

#

Great hopes they had these crowds in green

A victory that they could gleam

In an epic, glorious scene

Came the ten thousand

#

No inn or tavern spared from it

That irrepressible Irish wit

Shouting irish quite a bit

Came the ten thousand

#

Alas the team failed to bring

Victory or anything

But oh how the fans did sing

All the ten thousand

#

In all three games they came to naught

Though not dejected as they ought

A nation’s pride instead was sought

So sang the ten thousand

#

Green shirts and flags were packed away

To wait again for the day

Were once again we come and say

Here come the ten thousand
