Acrostic Inspiration for Leeds United Fans – by Rob Atkinson


For all the ills we’ve borne
Until the bitter end
Come rain, come wind, come gale
Know ye this for sure

Our destiny will be fulfilled
For the faithful of our tribe
Fate has a bounty in store

Yet long the road we have to tread
Old and feeble though some be
United in lack of fear or dread

Many the barriers in our path
Awesome the mountains yet to scale
Never a thought of turning back

Until the fateful day arrives
Nary a doubt will we confess
In true fidelity bound to our oath
Till our deserved reward draws near
Ever determined, ever brave
Destined to reach our ultimate goal

Safe at last we’ll gain our ends
Closer still our bond shall be
Unto the last we stood as one
Mightier now than any foe

    • That’s very flattering Mr O! I’m a massive fan of Rupert Brooke, Owen and Sassoon too. I suspect that, a century on, these guys are due a major revival.
