Luther Blissett
one of many,
many black players
retiring at the end of a
fabulous career.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Leaders of men
on the pitch. Blessed
with an abundance of tactical
intellect, 22 times
rejected. Not even an
interview. No feasible
explanation.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Except for that one.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The one that nobody
in this age cares to utter,
because to ask is to admit
that, yes,
we are still doing it.
