STANDING UP FOR CELTIC, NATIONAL POETRY DAY

Standing Up For Celtic! #nationalpoetryday

From the graveyard to Paradise,

from the moment people started working

for the cause, to build the dream

you have always stood for Celtic

and you have always stood for me.

You have survived storms, fires

and the supports desires.

From naked ambition

to cinder tracks

cycle tracks

pavilions

drench lights hunting wolves

a jungle refurbished

a 70’s stand

new clothes for your birthday

and Fergus Mccanns plans.

Thankfully you survived Cambuslang.

Standing on gravel

crumbling terracing

with weeds poking through seeing the game for free,

no roofs, leaking roofs

flickering toilet lights,

cold plastic seats, surrounded by breezeblock grey,

a cathedral of noise

passion

love

is the warmth to our Paradise

the soul of the Celtic way.

Your decoration has an eye to the past

your shape has changed

generations have attended

but you have remained the same.

You have always stood for Celtic

and you have always stood for me.
