To Rob, Dublin and the Friendlies… thank you all so much ♥

22 Sep

I’m not quite sure where to begin…
There’s so much that I just can’t keep in!
I’ll begin at the start,
Get it down, from the heart,
And I’ll pour me a big glass of gin…
**
Right, so news came… Rob’s playing some shows.
But where will they be, no one knows.
Will he come to Belfast?
My home venue, at last?
No but Dublin’s in there, stay composed…
**
Will I get a ticket, oh God aye…
Shit! A ballot for tickets? I could cry!
So the likelihood is
I’ll get nowhere, feck this!
Me? A loser? Hell no, I will try…
**
So I entered my name for the draw
And I prayed that I’d draw the long straw…
But alas, it was no
From the ballot, no go.
So I tried to forget it, sod’s law!
**
But I certainly wasn’t alone.
Loads of friends didn’t get, ’twas well known
That demand would be mighty,
From Australia to Blighty
Half a million Rob fans in the zone…
**
But then came a rare second chance,
And I tried it again, in a trance,
And yes!!! I’ve got two
Standing tickets, woo hoo!!
Can’t believe it. My God, time to dance!!
**
So who will I make my plus one?
My sister? My brother? My son?
My husband? My Mummy?
They can’t go, I’ll ask Scrummy!!
I reckon we could have some fun!
**
So our plans were all hastily made.
Flight was booked, and the hotel was paid.
Got our banner designed
Hoping we’d get it signed!
Oh and Minstrels, the largest bag made!!!
**
So from Belfast to Dublin we went,
And a fortune we’d already spent!
But sure we didn’t care,
We were high on just air
And the thought of Rob, who’s heaven sent…
**
So we dumped off the car, got a cab
Into Dublin, now where is our Bab?
Brown Thomas it is,
I was in such a tiz
We’d see Rob? Yeah, we’d give it a stab…
**
After waiting a while who’d we see?
Only Moonii and Scosha, yippee!!
A real friendly meet,
Can’t believe this, how sweet!!
We were buzzing or was that just me?
**
Before long a huge cheer could be heard.
From then on my poor memory’s blurred…
But Robbie was there
Right before me, I swear,
Looking hot, oh so hot, ’twas absurd!
**
So I held up my banner, “Rob look”
And he read it, check the photo I took!
And Scrummy called out
“Minstrels!!  Shook them about.
So he’d seen us, but was it a fluke?
**
We made our way to the O2
With the hope of just joining the queue.
Though I have to report
That the queue was quite short.
Happy days, now let’s find me a loo!
**
Loads more friendlies were there in the queue…
Julie B, Eims, Miss Sexy and Sue,
And Inette from Denmark,
Who was heard to remark
She was shorter than…well, you know who…
**
There was Mellers from Navan as well…
Looking mightily sexy as hell!
And our Sally from Oz
Wins the trophy because
She flew from down under, flippin’ hell!!
**
So at last the O2 opened wide…
And we all made our way on inside
“No running!” Aye right!
What a great load of sh*te!
And we RAN to the front, side by side.
**
We waited for what seemed like an age
Gazing up at what would be Rob’s stage.
And at last, this is it…
Oh my God, holy sh*t!
For the night I forgot my real age…
**
Rob, you rocked it like never before…
Gave us more than we could have hoped for!
And when you spoke to me
All my friends will agree
That it made my whole day, and much more…
**
Me and Scrummy had Minstrels for you
From Brown Thomas, you remembered, you knew!
You came for them too
Almost caught them, big phew!!
You said “breakfast of champions”, so true!
**
And then you said Carnspindle… *swoon*
And you dedicated my favourite tune
To Scrummy and me,
Yes! Eternity!
And we sang as we grinned like two loons!!!
**
And then you came back towards me,
And you asked about my poetry,
Said it’s “very fucking good”
Put me right in the mood…
I was honoured, if somewhat dizzy!
**
Seemed before it had started, ’twas done.
And I doubt that gig will be outdone…
You were on such top form,
God, you went down a storm!
I for one feel you’ve done it, you’ve won!!
**
So to Trickaduu Merk I’d just say
Hope to meet you one day to convey
My own thank you to you
And I owe you a brew!
Now get on with a new Joke of the Day!!! 😉
**
And to finish this monstrous rhyme
Congrats to the Williams, big time!!!
Welcome darling wee Teddy
Who’ll keep Daddy steady
Rob enjoy her, while you’re in your prime…
**
So to all of you, can I say thanks…
What a day we all had, how we danced!!!
I will always remember
14th September
So so lucky to have had the chance!
