Ferenc Puskas R.I.P.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 How do you write an obituary for somebody you’ve never seen play?
You don’t. You leave it to the experts.

Start with your heroes. Listen to what they say about their hero.
And then like a true disciple –
Believe …
And respectfully grieve

BBC Obituary :
Ferenc Puskas

My haiku above, makes reference to Puskas’ portly figure – even in his footballing prime, he was quite rotund.
