Saturday afternoon saw United lost.
The tears of Manchester trickled to sea
To mingle with the indigo salt water.
Old Trafford melted into ash
As the crimson flame of the LIverpool team blazed proudly.
Joy left Lancashire and agony hovered above the stadium,
Waiting to land on a turf that had faded emerald.
The spotlights became blind
While the victorious chant for the heroic Reds floated back to Merseyside.
