When the Lions roamed free

Special Remembrance Sunday match report, in memory of all those who suffered during the 2 World Wars
(Based on “When the Tigers broke free” by Pink Floyd)

It was just after dawn
One overcast morning
In November I’m told

When the Red Lions chairman
Was told to fuck off
When he asked that the game be postponed

And Carnegies gave thanks
As the Lions ranks
Held back the JFC tanks for a while

And the Da Jia Bridge pitch
Was held for the price
Of 11 heroic Red Lions

And kind Captain Cooke
Sent Mirko a gift
When he found out he’d played a good game

It was – so I hear
In the form of a beer
He wanted more of the same

And I drank some that day
The memories of that game being
Hidden away

But it so filled my soul
To see Mora stick away
A classic Red Lions goal

It was light all around
There was rain on the ground
When the Lions roamed free

They were outnumbered,
Tired and outgunned
Thus the Lions concede three

There were Red Lions missing
One of them Dumb, another one Dumbass
And that’s how the Red Lions lost to J….

In Memory of the Fallen:

Private Ian
Private Panda
Private Pfff
“Want to see my First Class Privates” Sinistera
Corporal Charles
Sergeant Nestor
Sergeant First Class Mirko
Field Marshal Fred
El Generale Alejandro
Major Mora
Major “Fuck Up” Fowler



About Mao

Chairman Mao. The man who takes the Taipei Red Lions to new depths of corruption. Hands out more fines for more reasons than any man in history. Thinks he's a good keeper, but try sending in a cross for him to take. But he writes a mean match report. And even occasionally buys a round himself. And he keeps the Politburo in check.
