History will soon be made,
Upon the board,
Their honours engraved.
Nerves on edge, muscles tighten.
Jaws are set, knuckles whiten.
A dot ball passes, atmosphere heightens.
Those left standing: gods among titans.
They’ll deliver the fight, session by session.
The nation’s pride their only obsession
For one. For all.
The bat.
The ball.
Old scores. New clashes.
Together we’ll Rise
For The Urn.
The Ashes.

#RISE
Anon., England fan.
