‘WEE DOYLIE,’ A CELTIC MAN

0

He was fearless … fiery … feisty,

never known to shirk a ruck;

wore his heart upon his sleeve

like any fan -

swapped the Jungle

for the tunnel,

as wee Doylie rode his luck

to play for Celtic,

live the dream – a Celtic Man!

 Just like “Jinky”, his great hero,

he was prone to lose the plot;

had his share of early baths,

as redheads can -

but his heart beat

to the rhythm

of the code his father taught:

he lived for Celtic -

lived and died a Celtic Man!gw991h702

 When he got his marching orders

that day “Ten Men Won the League”,

he was gutted,

thought he’d flushed it

down the pan.

John Doyle breathed and bled the Celts

in every thought, hope, word and deed -

so, it was fitting

that he died a Celtic Man!
