Chanting Zidane

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I was very pleased when my
wife said that you were
“tonsured”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 because, for the life of me, I
would not have come up with
that word—an anchoritic word
and appropriate

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 since I associate you with the
spiritual world.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 In my first footballing dream,
my wife and I stood on a
sloping pitch, Ugandans
joining a circle and other
nations appearing on the
horizon.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Were we circled around your
half-bald head, finally free?
