An Ode to the North London Derby


NLD Battle

Two days to wait for the match we long for
North London bragging rights and so much more
Always special to special to beat Spurs but now with added sheen
The extra incentive of putting one over, our old mate Maureen
To wipe the smug smile from his face
To end their hopes of a European place
Of course it’s a Derby so form is not a thing so
Deciding where to bet, is it head or heart bingo 
Five unbeaten for Mikel’s  boys, confidence re-found
Up to win the first NLD, at the Middlesex boys new ground
So much at stake, so more than just pride
Sunday is a battle in which no player can truly hide
Lose on Sunday, season over for them, for us a different story
A win crucial to regain Europe, but the Gunners still have Cup glory
To beat the old enemy needs no extra incentive or reason
But the reality is, 3 points to us, effectively ends their season
So roll on Sunday, for which player a hero’s calling
Perhaps more than one in red and while, lets give the Spuds a mauling
One sweet win, this time away
Might usher back St Totteringham’s Day
