Am I in love?
I sometimes wonder…
You have painted London red, along with my heart
The streets chant your anthem,
My heart choruses your name,
Belting out, “One-Nil to the Arsenal!” so off-tune
What have you done?
My heart’s hijacked from the nest of my ribs
Only Arsenal pumps the rich red liquid
The same shade as London’s pool of scarlet shirts
Oh! Have I been gunned too?
By the gunner-shots?
Piercing my iron self
With a red-coated Cupid’s arrow
Is this an obsession?
One too many times told to switch sides,
As stubborn as an ox, I am
I have stood true
I am, after all,
A Gooner always with the Gunners
