        Ive just written this poem because today is the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough and at the time I watched the events unfold on the tv.

        After Hillsborough  ©2014

        I watched TV in the April of eighty nine

        As many were taken before their time

        I watched as fences crushed the crowd

        And thought this is not what they deserve

        Running around the park that day

        Like drowning rats trying to escape

        I thought on that day

        Someone will pay

        For this Hillsborough tragedy

        And after so ,so many years

        The truth will finally reach our ears

        The lies the cover ups no more

        The hate for those who bore no blame

        Gutter press and some police

        Should hang their heads in shame

        I hope the whole truth will be seen

        And justice will out in time

        For the ninety six precious lives

        Taken before their time.

        That's a very lovely and poignant poem commemorating a tragic event righton angel I was a child when it happened but those awful images of trapped fans have stuck with me over the years. While I haven't closely followed the details of the formal investigation and/or inquiry, it's clear to me that the full story of what happened and who was responsible has yet to come out.

        Very moving righton and sadly so true.

        I remember that dreadful day and even now find it hard to watch when more details rear their ugly head and they show it on the news.

        beautiful poem there mate.

        Indeed such a tragedy, but on a positive side I really hope Liverpool will win the title this year. It is sure up to them this year, and if they win all 4 remaining games.

        Indeed, it would be absolutely fabulous for Liverpool to win the title 25 years after Hillsborough, an event that has left deep scars in the souls of their fans.
