1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The English fog sets in the sky.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 For qualification
in front of the blue forest
Beckham has taken
the Excalibur sword
out of the stone and the steel
shines on his leg.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 While he awaits
the whistle of hostilities
in the forest he sees
blue Greek shadows
following every rose
that attempts to bloom alone.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When the whistle sounds
one only darkness awakes
breaking the tombstone
built 9 meters in front–

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 His saber caresses
a silver bent in the sky
glittering a plated path
through out the day:

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The ball daring dawn
ran atop the perfect depth
hacking the bay and ward
and slashing the jugular of the net.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The goal bleeds.
Like dying inertia
Greek navy shadows
are turned to ghosts.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 One only rosebush
of many Britain buds
blooms on the field:

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Unbent, an English vapor ship
sails across the grandstands.
