Cup Tie Karma?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ron leads a frenzied monochrome charge
Waving imaginary red cards
To later…turn his back, enacting I surrender
The Old Lady sighs, scant chance of victory gone
Watching a valiant Porto soldier on
Inspired by…an outstanding veteran defender.

Notes

The noble Italian art of defending a slender lead, comes back to haunt past masters of said…Juve. As the ten uber-menschen of Porto led be veteran Pedro (who seems to have been around longer than compatriot Ron) ignore a sending-off set-back, stand defiant, and send Juve crashing out of The Champions League after extra time. In a good old fashioned full on never say die…cup tie. Well worth a watch if you missed it.

Peace.

Stay sage, come what may, raise both hands, grasp the day.
