Croatian in Paris

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I started as the Croatian fan in Paris
but became close with the Dubliners
of James Joyce, Gandhi
or I started as a Croatian fan
in Paris and I invented Facebook
or magistrated at Oxford

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 How to support Croatia living in Paris
Yes, everything is getting on nerves
But…
Instead to stand in front of the bar or
restaurant with a French flag shouting
Hrvatska,Hrvatska
I started my quiet and beautiful tour

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I started giving the ‘likes’
by showing and pointing my raised Thumb meaning
‘like’
toward the shops,windows,restaurants
and buildings where there is no any French flag
due to the match or just passing by the ones with
the flags

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 ‘Oxford University urban study’ conclusion
was that there were dozens of windows
and shops and restaurants without any
flag due to this football match

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Realistic picture

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 There have been hundreds of my ‘likes’
for them

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 But, I concluded that
Paris is a free and open
cosmopolitan and welcoming city

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 If you are a football supporter you can
in this way start giving ‘likes’
and learn much about cities
and cosmopolitism
