Ode to Wes

by , January 31, 2012

Both immovable object and unstoppable force,
allowing nothing to knock him off course
in pursuit of the ball no matter the cost
and never conceding the battle as lost.

Over ninety minutes or nine hard years,
through promotion joy and play-off tears,
no one gave more than this fellow fan,
the local boy we watched grow to a man.

He was never called the brains of the side,
but always the strength, the heart, the pride,
a solid rock on which to build
a fortress to leave no forward fulfilled.

But though we thought we’d not see the day
our unstoppable force has gone his own way
leaving boots to be filled by unworthy feet –
Wes Morgan is a man you will never beat.
