Poetry: Twilight by Andrew Gigacz

Twilight

 

by Andrew Gigacz

 

 

Footy is not for Twilight

 

Footy is for Highlights and Lowlights

And Friday night Floodlights

 

Twilight is not for footy

 

Twilight is for Goths

For Stephanie Meyer and Bella Swan

 

It’s not for footy

 

Twilight is for teenagers and Kristen Stewart

It’s for Robbie Pattinson and Billy Burke

 

But it’s not for footy

 

Twilight is for Rod Serling and his Zone

For Steven Spielberg and Dan Ackroyd

 

But it wasn’t for Vic Morrow (he died)

 

And it isn’t for footy

 

Twilight is for catching the early train to work

It’s for walking the dogs in the park

 

Twilight is for barbecues and beer in the evening

And for babies and bed-wetting in the morning

 

But twilight is not for footy

 

Twilight is for Terry Wallace

For Richo and Aka and Lloyd

 

It’s for them

But not their game

Well, here we are. The Bulldogs have won a flag. What do I do now?
